Vintage & Classic Bear Paw Quilt Block

I am taking part in Fat Quarter Shop’s Vintage & Classic series blog hop today and the block being presented is the Vintage & Classic Bear Paw Quilt Block which is one of my favorites. This is going to be a table runner and was stitched on my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine.

I used some of the Heart’s Content batiks I had left over from my Spinners quilt that I made last month……yes, I still need to get the pattern finished.

I also had some other batiks, here I added in a purple batik and a dot background. I will make more blocks and probably make a lap quilt.

You know how much I love working with batiks and they are perfect for classic blocks!
