In making a 6-inch bear paw block (6-1/2" unfinished), the following dimensions worked
Step 1. - Cut two strips, one each of light and dark fabric, 3-1/8" x 6-1/4".
- Mark two 3-1/8" squares on the baack of the lightest fabric. Then mark diagonal lines through the squares, forming a V.
- Put light and dark strips right ssides together and press so they will stick together (you may also need to pin).
- Beginning at one corner, stitch 11/4" on each side of the diagonal lines.
- Press and cut apart on all drawn lines. Press each of the four half-square triangles open to the dark fabric.*
- Using a square-up ruler, trim to 2-1/2" squares.
Step 2. Sew two sets of two of the squares together, forming the claws of the paw.
Step 3. Cut a 2-1/2" square of light fabric. Sew this square to one of the claw sets.
Step 4. Cut a 4-1/2" square of dark fabric. Sew this square to the other claw set.
Step. 5. Sew the two sets together to complete the bear paw block.
*Trim bulk from all seams.
