Friendly Bear Paw© 

        Intermediate Skill Level, Approx. size: 35" X 35"
       Designed by Betty K., 2000

Fabric Requirements: Note:  The quilt is made of 9 blocks, sashing, and 3 borders.

5 fat-eighths that coordinate with focus fabric (each measuring 10” x 22”)
1 fat-quarter of a focus fabric for sashing
(19” x 22”)

1/4 yd for border #1  (could be same focus fabric as sashing)
3/4 yd for background and border #2
1/2 yd for border #3 (outer border)

Cutting Instructions for One Block: (You need to make 9 blocks)

1. With one of the 5 fat-eighths fabrics and the background fabric, use your favorite technique to make 16 half square triangles that measure 1½” unfinished  (1” finished).  These form the “toes” of the bear paw block.

2. From the same fat-eighth fabric, cut 4 squares 2 ½” x 2 ½”.  These form the “paws” of the bear paw block.

3. From the backgroun­­d fabric, cut four squares 1 ½”.

4. Also from background fabric cut 4 rectangles 1 ½” x 3 ½”.

5. From outer border, fabric, cut 1 square 1 ½”.

Sewing Instructions:  (For one block) Press in the direction of the arrows.

1.  Using the 16 half-square triangles, sew two triangles together. Note direction of “toes”.  Make 4 pairs facing right and make 4 pairs facing left.
