My first memory of quilting was sitting at my Granny’s side as she pieced block after block after block. I remember the first block that I made under her tutelage…..sure wish that I still had it!!!
She was always smiling…..
…especially when surrounded by her bevy of grandchildren…..
Every summer she would invite us by twos to spend a week with her and it was one of the things that I looked forward to the most!
She ALWAYS had a quilt going, including this bear’s paw that she pieced and then my Mom added a border and hand quilted…..
Like my Mom, she loved to use red in a quilt and it sure made these blocks pop!!
Everything that she made was from scraps and I love the mixture of fabrics that are found in the quilt….
As “Bear’s Paw” blocks go, this one is pretty complicated, especially adding the on-point squares in each of the blocks.
It is a favorite quilt and I am so thankful that I get to enjoy her work!! I just wish she could see what I am doing now…..I think that she would be pleased!!
