Bear Paw Baby Pattern Release

I'm back with a bit of a bang! Here is the first of two upcoming new patterns, my Bear Paw Baby quilt.
The Bear Paw block holds a special place in my heart; it was the quilt block that got me heart and soul into quilting. You may think, ugh, all those HSTs, no thanks, but if you make them using the two-at-a-time method as described in the pattern, you may rethink that 'ugh'! Better yet, if you use an AccuQuilt HST die, you will be over the moon, I kid you not. The HSTs are 2" finished in the quilt.

Cut Time, Quilt More
That is an affiliate link. That's another thing I did over my break, became an AccuQuilt affiliate.

Remember I only talk about things I use and love on this blog, and the HST and strip cutter dies are my favourites. I also used the bear paw die BoB to make this quilt! 

Ha, I didn't actually plan to mention that when I was writing this post, just the HST one, but it is true. Don't worry; if you click through my links, you don't pay anymore. I get a commission on your purchase. Good news, I just found out when I got that photo: this die is on sale, as are all dies 59.99 and up until tomorrow. Use the code 15DIES to get 15% off!

Anyhow, my Baby Bear Paw pattern is also on sale in my Etsy shop all week! 25% off, so just $7.50CA. The block is 14", so don't think it's a baby block, just a baby quilt!

I had two testers test the pattern. Here is Pam's version:
Such a great baby boy quilt! You can see Pam's photos on her Instagram and on her Facebook.

I will add Nicci's once she sends me her photo. Like me, she took a wee break in early July.

I would like to say a special thank you to Jennifer, who is a sweet blog reader, yet another kindred spirit, who first wrote to me asking for a pattern. She spurred me on to just sitting down and writing it already.

Here is the original once more! You can read about the actual quilt here. As always, thank you so much for your support of my blog and my patterns.


  1. Good luck with your new patterns and affiliation. This is a fun, classic easy pattern!

  2. Congratulations, Sandra. Another pretty quilt!

  3. Very cute quilt. I've been buried in bear paws of late and no real end in sight so it's fun to see a variation on the theme.

  4. Oh, how did I miss this post?? I’m glad I scrolled back, because, you know, Bear Paws!! You are right: the HSTs are a snap. You might need to warn your customers that they won’t be able to stop making them.

  5. Congratulations on the pattern release, Sandra!

  6. Congrats on the newest pattern release!

  7. So exciting to release a pattern and become an affiliate. I tried out my mom’s AccuQuilt for the first time last week. So much fun!
