Bear Paws

Just a quick post to show you my latest project.... Bear Paws!

I joined a "block swap" at my local quilt store where we each make 12, 6 inch bear paw blocks out of batik fabrics, then turn them in and they all get swapped! It's one of my first "swaps" that I've done, the other being the Holiday fat quarter fabric swap, over at "Gen X quilters(&Y too!)". I just got both my ornament and first fat quarter from my friend over at "Aunt Spicy". Very nice! I hope to post pictures of that soon too.

I must admit that in making all these cute little bear paws, I became a bit attached to them, and was just a wee bit sad to hand them over to the quilt store owner. But I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes back!!

Here's one more picture of another bear paw quilt that I'd already started before I even knew about the quilt block swap. That quilt has a fun story already, and it's not even done yet, but I'll share that later.
I was hoping to continue with a "brown" theme... "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?", but unfortunately I've been suffering from a horrid case of food poisoning. My local quilting buddy also got it after we had lunch out together on Tuesday. Bummer. We're both on the mend though. That said, I'm off to bed and hoping everyone out there is doing well....
