I've been invited to tell you about a WIP I'm working on at the moment.
I'm currently working on my class projects for next term, which means making class samples and writing up the patterns in advance of the classes.
Next term I hope to teach a new quilt design called 'Baby Bear Paw':
The idea behind this design is to take a traditional block like Bear's Paw, and modernise it. You can see here when you put 4 Bear Paw blocks together you get a giant star! This baby quilt will be approx. 49" x 49".
And because this block design is so versatile, you could easily upsize and create a Mama Bear Paw Quilt (approx. 73" x 73"):
I've quantified the fabric requirements and have decided to use a fq bundle of Savannah Bop which I won at FQ Retreat last June.
I'm very fortunate to be in the position of owning a Sizzix, and the 4.5" hst die has made light work of the cutting out.
Using the Sizzix means the hsts don't need to be trimmed or squared off when sewn together! How cool is that!
So that's my WIP for today! I hope to have this quilt finished and photographed soon, for the new programme of classes being released next month!
