Bear Paw quilt

IMG_0001



I’ve started this quilt a bit more than 3 years ago.  Actually a dozen of us in Singapore started it together.  A friend organised a retreat where we all shared a bit of Batik.  The original idea was to sew four blocks.  But then… I got carried away… and ended up with 14 blocks.  Only 12 won at the blocks audition.  It’s huge (2x2 m – 78x78”).


I added the borders and sandwiched the quilt quite quickly but then I decided to hand quilt it. That was a bad decision, it’s far to hot to hand quilt in S’pore.

A long-arm quilter friend quilted some large flowers all over, and now I wonder why it took me so long to finish it and so long to show it here.
