Bear’s paw quilt block video tutorial

This block is known by different names though the most common I’ve come across is Bear’s Paw.

Other names are: Ducks-Foot-in-the-Mud, Hand of Friendship, Turkey Track, Tea Leaf Design.

Regardless of the name it’s traditional and it’s beautiful and, most importantly, easy to make.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
