Quick Update

After cutting all the pieces for the Modern Bear Paw QAL, I started the piecing process this week. The blocks are a bit time consuming. All those small bear claws (HST) which are made oversized for accuracy purposes results in a lot of trimming! They add up to 16 claws per block!
The trimming and pressing does not bode well with the arthritis in my hands.
I do love these Bear Paws! 
I have completed 10 blocks (or 160 claws) and I have some more partially pieced together.

  1. Your pink bear paw blocks are super sweet, Dawn! I am so looking forward to seeing a girly version of this MOD Bear Paw design. I do feel for you with all the work that goes into those HST's. But little by little... You're sure to make your way!

  2. So pretty bear claws. 'Love the pink color. Lorna's QAL's are always so much fun.
