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

    Those are some great blocks Judy. Laughed at Speck and the pillowcase. Writing for a hunting magazine? They must have seen Vince’s deer blind!!

    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!!

    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.
