I knew the moment I picked this block for the month that I wanted to Supersize it. You could easily go larger with this block but I gave myself the limit of still being able to pull from my stash of FQs.
Still…at 42.5″ unfinished, this block could be a quilt all in its own. As soon as I pick a FMQ design to practice, I’ll quilt and bind this up as a nice scrappy baby quilt.
The construction method is the same as I outlined in my Bear Paw Starter Block post.
Here are the fabric requirements for your own Supersize Bear Paw:
- Eight 7″ squares of print fabric for the Claws (HSTs)
- Four 12.5″ squares of print fabric for the Paws
- One 6.5″ square of print fabric for the Block Center
- Eight 7″ squares of background fabric for the Claws (HSTs)
- Four 6.5″ squares of background fabric for Block Corners
- Four 6.5″ x 18.5″ strips of background fabric for the connectors
I used my standard method of making HSTs again. Your HSTs are trimmed down to 6.5″ square to create this size block.
This full top came together in just over an hour which was quicker than I expected. I love the look of these single block quilts and I’m sure this won’t be my last.
