Mary's Paws

I've had Mary's Bear Paw block finished for quite some time, but just never took the time to get over here and post it. So I'm sure Mary has seen it by now, and now you can see it, too.

This block was very easy and more fun than I thought it would be. I thought I'd get bored with those triangles, but they went fast and I didn't. Talk about First World Problems! Haha . . .

I also thought I'd give you a glimpse of what my Laurel Leaves quilt is looking like so far.

These are all the blocks I have so far. Note that I have not even pressed or trimmed them yet.

I'm adding an applique border, but my design quandary at the moment is whether or not to add some sort of red solid or red & white pieced border in between the blocks and the outer border, or not. What do you all think?


  1. Mary's block looks great! And WOW all your blocks together look fantastic!

  2. I'm loving these bear paws! So fun!!! And WOW your laurel leaves look great! Mine's coming along slowly but surely. You should have it soon.

  3. Love those red leaves with or without borders! And the Bears Paw looks really sharp, too.

  4. I love your Bear's Paw. I really love how your Laurel Leaves look together. I think I would like to see them with a red sashing, but I'm not sure. The solid white looks awfully nice, too. Hmmmm....

  5. Your Laurel Leaves look fantastic! I think it would be fun to try some kind of red in between the blocks.

  6. I was wondering when I'd see this one online that I've already seen in person, and which is great--thanks Shelly!

    You've got a tough decision with the leaves, so test some out! They look so great, the quilt will be gorgeous no matter what you decide.

  7. Another bear paw beauty Shelly!
    I'm thinking a solid red would be so stark with those soft floaty blocks. I wouldn't sash them. Just my thought.
