ABC Quilt Block Sampler Project 2

Bear Paw

This is my second block for my ABC Quilt Sampler using names of blocks alphabetically as my inspiration for the quilt. My friend Diana had this idea and I decided to participate and do one of my own. I did pick my own blocks
The block measures 14 inches. I really like this one. I did alter the design a little. It called for 2 1/2 blocks instead of strips for the center piecing. I liked the look from the first block Autumn Tints so I stayed with the same style. That is the nice thing about quilters prerogative. I love the colors of this block. I used the same tan color in the middle to tie in the first block- which used it as a background color. I am really enjoying this process and feel like I am learning a little bit about trimming, ironing and setting of block squares. It is a lot of work.
So what do you think?

  1. Love it, esp. the dark and light of the 2 color, they really make the block 'pop'.
