We’re taking on a new quilt block this week! This Easy Bear Paw Quilt Block in the RBD Block Challenge was super fun to put together.
This was actually my first time making a Bear Paw Quilt Block! I really had a great time with it – though I’ll confess those tiny little half square triangles in the 6 1/2″ block were a little challenging! :)
Every week Riley Blake Designs is doing a low-key block challenge with classic quilt blocks. It’s been such great practice and so fun to sew along with. I’m using my Singing in the Rain fabrics. I can’t wait to see all these together in the finished quilt – I think it will look like a classic quilt sampler!
I’ve been trying to switch up my colors every time so for these I made the larger 12 1/2″ block with pinks and the 6 1/2″ block with aquas. I used the white rainboot print for the center and did a little fussy cutting!
