For those who are joining in the quilt along, I have decided to have a linky party where you can share your progress throughout the quilt along. So if you have chosen your fabrics and have them all cut out and written a post, feel free to link up here!

 
 
 
 
 
Click on this link ===> MOD Bear Paw QAL page for all the details and to see the schedule.
 

 

A quilt along is always more fun than quilting alone.
Want to get in on the fun?

Sew Fresh Quilts

 

If you are interested in quilting along, please add the button to your blog and help to spread the word. Also….  Please feel free to share via social media!  And add the hashtag #MODbearpawQAL
It is not necessary to purchase the pattern in order to participate.  But if you would prefer the convenience of using a printable pdf pattern, MOD Bear Paw is available for purchase and includes complete cutting instructions and a detailed guide to finishing the entire quilt in any of the four different sizes listed.  The pattern is available in my pattern store here.
