Find Your Path Bearpaw Quilt Block Tutorial, Giveaway & Blog Hop

Have you seen Maureen Fiorellini's newest Find Your Path fabric collection for Studio E Fabrics?

When I saw this adorable collection, I knew I had to make use of the bear paw quilt block! The 6" block panel was perfect to build from.

For each Bearpaw block you'll need:

8 - 2.5" x 2.5" 6716-66 Small Trees Green

8 - 1.5" x 2.5" background strips

You now have an adorable Bearpaw quilt block! (Take a look at the soft book that is part of this collection as well)

I made 4 Bearpaw blocks to create my quilt. I simply added 2.5" (unfinished) sashing between the blocks and outside edges.

I really wanted to showcase all of the fabrics, so I added 2 borders as well. The first border is 3.5" of the Gray Mushrooms (6714-90).

The second border is 3.5" squares from the rest of the collection.

I pieced together a backing and used my favorite binding method, Chenille-It. I had the perfect Natural color Chenille-It roll for this project and I just love how it turned out.

Speaking of Chenille-It, head over to my Instagram post today to enter to win 1 roll of your choice of Chenille-It Blooming Bias! As well as, 1 Find Your Path 6" square block panel as featured in my quilt from Maureen Fiorellini.
