Back to the mystery quilt... I doubled sewed the star points so I could get a "bonus" triangle. So I had 96 2" HSTs each of pink and purple. Bear's Paw or Claw was the first thing to pop into my mind. My husband helped me decided that Paw would be a better version.
I never did understand why almost all Bear's Paws out there are in what I call "cabin" colors. Colors you would use to decorate a rustic log cabin. Time for a change! Nice and girly for me. :)
What I need opinions on is... do I sash or not? If yes, do I do one color like in the pictures, or do I go for scrappy? I want there to be a nice balance of pink and purple. I also like the no-sashing idea, but I had a duh moment. If I wasn't gonna sash... then why didn't I sew the blocks together with all the toes pointing inwards?! I'm just kinda stuck this time.
So the blocks are put aside for the moment and now I'm working on making a raggy jean/flannel quilt. Cutting them at 7" square, and will finish at 5". I'm planning to free motion quilt on the squares, play around with new ideas and such. Gotta practice for my future long arm machine, right? ;)
