Bears Paw Quilt Block
This is a “Bears Paw” quilt block. It is made using diamonds and triangles from different kinds of wood, all in their natural colors. There are 74 pieces on this block, 20 diamonds and 54 triangles, all full size. It measures 6 5/8” square. To finish them, I use one coat of varnish brushed on and 2 or 3 coats of a clear wiping varnish, rubbed in by hand.
The type of wood is listed on the bottom from the center out. On this quilt block the wood is “Cedar” “Hackberry” and “Walnut” from Missouri.
