Bear Claw Quilt, finished!

I last updated on this quilt here.  I put the last stitches in last night, and washed, dried and photographed it today.  I'm hoping to deliver it on Friday!  So happy to have this quilt done, and so pleased with the way it turn out!  It is a Birthday present for my twin brother, Liam (our birthday is in August, but I told him not expect it until Christmas, so I'm a month ahead of schedule, ha!).

I think it's twin sized, the last time I measured it was just before putting on binding and it was 67" x 82.5".

I really like how the back turned out too! 

I used all the left over squares I had.

Here are a few detail shots:

The label reads: Happy Birthday Liam!  Made with love by, Renee Hoffman, 2011

This is the only "easter egg" (hidden fun thing to find) I put in this quilt.

I machine sewed on the binding, I love how quick it is!  I used the same variegated thread that I used for the quilting.  Not thrilled with the thread (Isocord), so I felt like using more of it up.  

Putting this quilt together was really great, and it came together really nicely.  I'm glad I took the time to be as precise as possible with the cutting, piecing, ironing, etc!  This quilt was really gratifying because it was so smooth to put together.  Glad it's going to a good home!


  1. That is really beautiful Renee!! I think each quilt you make is my favorite, and then you do something even better for the next one! This one looks just perfect for fall. :)

  2. Very nicely done. Again, I love the back.
