Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!
Julia Child said that "People who love to eat are always the best people." Let me tell you, this Thanksgiving, Julia would certainly approve of everyone at my house. We've feasted and given thanks, and we decorated the sofa with this gorgeous cooking-themed quilt that my grandmother made for me a few years ago. I love the fun prints and colors in this one!
This week's Quilt of the Week is a navy and blue Bear Paw quilt. If you look closely, this is really just a variant of a nine-patch, but the addition of the triangular "claws" adds a sense of motion to the pattern. My granny made this one a few years ago for my beau. I think it's just beautiful.
If you want to try a Bear Paw quilt of your own, here's a downloadable pattern.
