I am blessed to have some very generous readers. Hazel recently sent me a wonderful antique bear paw quilt top.
She purchased the top for $5 at an auction house in Lynchburg VA about 1995. It had purple printed fabric and batting machine sewn on pillow case style on three sides. Hazel replaces a small amount of the pink and two large claws and a few of the black and white checks. I have to admit I can not tell which are the original and which are the replacements….she did a beautiful job!
The fabrics are just wonderful and I can not wait to quilt this!….I love everything about this one. It is all beautifully hand stitched …notice the very small seam allowances

I will post more about this beauty when I start quilting.
