Bear's Paw Top

I've completed the Bear's Paw quilt top... and wow! It's much longer than I realized.

I think it's almost 100 inches long. If I hadn't ran out of the darker plaid, perhaps I could have done a 4x5 block setting instead of 3x5.

But the top's done! Now I need to focus on some Christmas gifts. I'm gonna make as much as I can before leaving, and what doesn't happen I'll just have to buy for them.

Here's to hoping that I don't get sick like last year. :)

Very nice. I started a bear paw using Christmas fabrics. I hope it turns out nice. Have a Happy Holiday Season and enjoy your family.
