A Very Late Christmas Present by ladyiolanthe A Very Late Christmas Present by ladyiolanthe
This is a lap-sized quilt that I made for my friends :iconcurtana: and Forthright. It was all pieced in time for Christmas, but I had to quilt it, and with a move, work, and various new home ownership minor disasters, I kept not finding the time to actually quilt it.  Anyway, I finally finished it in March so I could send it to Ontario.

It's a scrap quilt from a pattern called "In the North Woods" by Joan Ford. The bear paw block is a very traditional block; the square part of the "paw" is usually a solid piece of fabric, but it's a four-patch block in this quilt.  What I love about making scrap quilts is that I get to use bits and pieces of fabric leftover from other projects I've done.  In this quilt, there are fabrics from the baby quilt I made for Curtana and Forthright's son, fabrics from baby quilts made for other mutual friends' children, fabrics from Longpig and Wererogue's wedding quilt, fabrics from :iconanyaveh: 's PhD quilt, etc. etc.  So, this quilt kind of weaves all my friends and I together. That's why I quilted it with hearts.
