Design Wall Monday – January 14, 2013

These are the bear’s paw blocks for Nicole’s New Beginnings quilt.  I had hoped to get all the bear paw blocks done yesterday but, as usual, I got a bit sidetracked.  I did get 5 blocks made so hopefully I can get the remaining four blocks done today.  Then I’ll need to get the setting triangle blocks done and then I can make the chain blocks.  No doubt, I’m being overly optimistic but I would like to get all these blocks done by the end of this week.

Blocks for Nicole’s New Beginnings Quilt

    Beautiful blocks, I have been thinking about adding more solids to quilts I make. I have seen so many lately that are made with only solids and they are beautiful! Have a wonderful day…and so glad Speck is feeling better! This morning, I myself wish I could crawl in a pillowcase and stay there..but alas work is calling!!

    Those blocks are just lovely, Judy! I cannot imagine how happy Nicole will be with the finished quilt.

    I love these blocks! I made bear’s paw many years ago. I like the way you have used a colored strip instead of background in the centers.
