When I first started looking through the book, I noticed that some of the patterns inside were of animals.
Bears Appear Everywhere
I had recently finished making a number of Bear Paw quilt blocks (for reasons that are unclear to me), and I was looking for an intriguing way to use them.

The bears that were featured in the book of animal quilt blocks seemed to be exactly what was needed.
I came up with the idea to make the bears out of a variety of different checked homespun fabrics, and each bear is unique.
From there, the Flying Geese were added to run horizontally across the quilt, as if they were flying back and forth, while the trees were used for vertical sashing between the bears as if they were planted in the forest. From there, the Flying Geese were added to run horizontally across the quilt.
Following the addition of the sawtooth borders, I filled in the corners with pinwheels rather than working the sawtooth borders into the corners themselves.
The next step is to place the Bear Paw blocks all the way around the perimeter. It’s possible that you’ll find a house quilt block tucked away in one of the lower corners. As it turned out, I did not have enough fabric for the Bear Paw blocks, so I am currently using other blocks to fill in the spaces that were left. There will be a tree growing on the upper border, and the house looks like it was made to go in that corner.
Even with projects where you have to make things up as you go, it never ceases to amaze me how everything works out in the end.
