quilted & bound & ready for the wall!



This one is a reminder that I really do like small and fiddly more than I like big and easy, but after putting together a hundred and twenty three pieces into a twelve by twelve inch square, I'm ready to go back to my 2 1/2" postage stamps for a couple of hours. Compared to the pieces in this little beauty, those are huge.

I'm glad Jo chose an easier block for March!

I never plan ahead, maybe this would fix that problem! This is so cute!! Thanks for the chance and adorable giveaway.

There were so many nice comments, I wish I'd had enough pumpkins for everyone who entered. Today is the last day to enter the Back to Charm School Giveaway, so you've still got a chance to win something fun.

This post is linked to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts, Sew and Tell, and Can I get a Whoop-Whoop? at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.... and I just added a link to Little Quilt Monday

I love Bear Paw blocks and have an occasional hankering for small and fiddly. I'm tempted to try this but maybe I'd make it a bit bigger.

I love to work small, too, but can see where it might have been a little overwhelming!! Great job on a great block!

That's a great hanging. I do like little pieces too :) But big is good, I'm going to start on your 30's barn raising this weekend. Just a wonderful quilt :)

I have always liked quilts with bigger pieces but I really admire that. I couldn't do it. But I admire it! Great job!

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful work! I love bear's paw quilt blocks. Yours has such variety, within the simplicity of the similar tones. This looks great, and it's a gorgeous finish!
