Piecing the Block:

  1. Using the quilt photo as a guide, lay out the Bear Paw blocks (with corner squares and sashing) on a design wall or table. This will make it easier to keep track of piecing.
  2. Sew together each pair of Half-Square Triangles. Press the seam toward the dark side. Place each finished block back into the layout.
  3. Sew together two pairs of the Half-Square Triangles (Diagram 1). Repeat until all pairs are sewn together. Place the blocks back into the layout.
  4. Add the 2 1/2" cream Squares to one pair of Half-Square Triangles (Diagram 2). Press toward the cream Square. Repeat for the top and bottom rows of all Bear Paw blocks.
  5. Sew the other set of Half-Square Triangles to the left or right side of the 4 1/2" Square (Diagram 3). Press toward the 4 1/2" Square. Repeat for all Bear Paw blocks.
  6. Sew the Bear Paw blocks together (Diagram 4). Press toward the 4 1/2" Square.
  7. Sew the blocks and sashing together into rows. Press the seams open to keep the bulk down at the points.
  8. Sew the rows together until you have completed the entire block. Again, press the seams open.


  1. Layer the batting and cushion top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
  2. Layer the cushion top and cushion back, right sides together. Pin and sew with a 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening approximately 6" long to stuff.
  3. Clip excess fabric in the corners on the diagonal. Turn right side out, stuff the cushion to desired loft and whipstitch closed.
