A Bear by any other name ...

Bear's Paw - a Variation
I have been working on some seven patch quilt blocks lately (I guess I just like the number seven perhaps?) and this week created two new patterns. What is common among quilt blocks is that many go by different names, but are basically the same block. This brings me to today's featured blocks

See if you can spot the subtle differences between the two blocks. (Okay, I said they were the same, but they are slightly different.)

And this list would not be complete without a link to the original Bear's Paw block -- an easier version. (You're welcome.)

Some Thoughts on Bears and Roses

  • "It would be fitting, I think, if among the last man-made tracks on earth would be found the huge footprints of the great brown bear."
    ~ Earl Fleming

  • "One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today."
    ~ Dale Carnegie

  • "Treaties, you see, are like girls and roses; they last while they last."
    ~ Charles de Gaulle
