Bear Paws



     Aren't these fun?!  They are the block lotto blocks I made for my local Modern Guild.  I had a lot of fun picking the fabrics for these Wild Bear Paws with more going on in the background than your normal Bear Paw.  A whole pack of these crazy Bear Paw blocks showed up at the meeting and I am sad to say I did not win them.  The lucky Melissa won them, and she gets to make them into a quilt.  It will be spectacular, no doubt.

     So you can see have been stitching a bit on my back up machine.  Things got changed around regarding the weekend. My daughter in law has immune issues which have flared up, so she and my son were unable to go away for the weekend.  I did get to babysit all day today though so I got my grand boy fix.  This means that I will have time tomorrow and on Sunday to work on my fabric cutting goals for the month.  Hopefully my main machine will be back home by the end of the week.

     For a while some people have been having difficulty leaving me comments on the blog.  That is probably fixed now.  Sandra from MMM quilts gave me advice on how to fix the problem so if you haven't been able to leave me comments and would like to, you can try again now.  

      I'll be linking this post up to the Let's Bee Social Linkup next week.  I hope to see you there.

What fun blocks; the finished quilt will be such a right of color and textures and prints! I'm glad you were able to get your grand boy fix and I hope you have a lovely and productive sewing weekend.

Hi Lisa! Yes, no issues commenting at all. Oh, those are fun Bear Claw blocks and I am sorry you didn't win them as they will make a fabulous quilt. They are almost a different take on an I Spy quilt! I hear you on the grand boy fix - I'm babysitting tonight to get my favorite kiddos fix. It does leave me time today to get some sewing done so it's a win/win all around. Happy Saturday. ~smile~ Roseanne

Bears Paw blocks are probably my second favorite block, and these are just darling! I love the dachshunds! Too bad you didn't win them, but they sure will make a fun quilt!

I love those bear claws! I've never made that block, it always seemed really old fashioned. But wow! In those fabrics! So fresh and modern :)

These little blocks are so cute! Melissa sure is lucky to now have them in her block stash :) Isn't it great to have a back up machine? Hope you have your main one back and buzzing around soon.
