Each year a contest sponsored by the Museum of the American Quilter's Society (MAQS) encourages quiltmakers to develop innovative quilts from a traditional pattern. Bear's Paw was the theme of the 8th annual contest. Learn helpful tips about the well loved Bear's Paw from the 18 contest winners and finalists featured in this book. Easy enough for a beginner, the block is made of simple squares and half-square triangles. Sashing strips added between paws give three dimensional effects and innovations in design, color, and form. Winning quilts in the MAQS contest become part of an exhibit touring the United States - look for it in your area.
