Today let’s put together a variation of the traditional Bear Paw quilt block. There are lots of other names for this block like The Best Friend, Bear’s Tracks, Bear’s Foot, Cat’s Paw, Duck’s Foot in the Mud, Hand of Friendship, Illinois Turkey Track, and Tea Leaf Design – WOW, that’s a lot!
Let’s sew together this easy quilt block pattern called Album. Yes, I know, there are lots of other quilt blocks out there that are also named Album. I think (no scientific research on this) that whenever our foremothers made a new block, they named it whatever they thought was appropriate.
