A Take On Bear Paw from Let's Begin Sewing

As my blog posts get more scarce, so is my quilt making. However in the past month a lot of quilts I made earlier have come into the limelight. Let me start with the first one.  A variant on the Bear Paw block.

This quilt was a long time in the making. About 3 years ago when I was undergoing physical therapy, while recovering from a knee injury I would find myself often staring at my shoes. The colors of the shoes really struck a chord with me and I decided to use them in my next quilt. Inspiration comes ...

The Quilter's Field Guide to Color ~ Context from Charm About You

Bear paw quilt block surrounded by fabrics used to sew the block

This is not just any book about colour, this is The Quilter's Field Guide to Color by Rachel Hauser.  I am not exaggerating when I say that this book is a game changer for me.

It's so much more than just information about colour (although it has got lots of that), it is packed full of genuinely helpful topics around colour. With excellent examples, tips and exercises to get ...
