Sewn together...............


Several people agreed with me yesterday in the comments that this was the perfect border for this Bear Paw quilt.  It is one of my favorite older Hoffman batiks.  I decided to just go ahead and cut the border pieces and sew them on.  It is 54" x 69".

I also cut and pressed a backing for a Marcia Derse fabric baby quilt top that I made in August so I will find batting for it today.

I totally agree that this is the perfect border. It picks up all the colors from the bear paws.

That certainly is the perfect border. I'd be hard pressed to have enough of any fabric for a border. Have a lovely Thanksgiving in whatever form it takes this year.

It's a beautiful quilt Wanda, and I love the colors. Going to do some prepping for the Thanksgiving meal today. This will be the first time in 65 years of married life that we won't be with any family, and hope it's the last.

Bear Paw extravaganza, your border frames this piece in all its glory. Another fabulous design from the studios of Exuberant Color.

It is beautiful - I do love bear paws, Wanda, and this batik one is probably my favourite. Thank you.
