About the Bear's Paw block:
bear's paw quilt block The Bear's Paw block is over a hundred years old, having originated in pioneer America. As you might imagine, coming across a bear track while travelling a wilderness trail definitely signalled the traveller to proceed with all senses alert.
Quilters who wanted to make a quilt for someone who was planning a great or dangerous undertaking would often choose a Bear's Paw block design. According to the family history of Ozella McDaniel Williams, runaway slaves knew that Bear's Paw quilts marked the best northern route through the Appalachian mountain wilderness to food, water and eventual freedom. All of this history was considered when we chose our name and we are very proud to have this powerful and beautiful design for our logo.
All prices are listed in Canadian dollars.
