Bear Paw Block BOW #6 Part 1 & 2

bear paw block

I’m really pretty excited to do this Bear Paw block because I absolutely LOVE bears which is a good thing since we see them periodically in the ‘hood.  (We live in the mountains of Western NC where bear and turkey abound.)  ​You see, a few years ago I talked my husband into moving up here from Greenville, SC because this area reminded me so much of where I grew up in Pittsburgh AND, this mountain girl longed for an area that reminded her of her childhood home.

The following short video shows the bears at my neighbor’s house. Not sure why the video still shot is appearing sideways because the video is ok.

Ok, in the first of this week’s videos, I use EQ7 a bit.  As I mentioned, I recently learned of a version called EQ Mini that is less expensive. I contacted the company to see if they had a trial version that I could download, test run and give you my opinion of the software but they said that they do not have one at this time.  Bummer.

Anyhooo, after searching their site, it looks like the software can do a LOT. At the bottom of this post I’ll put a link to it in case you’d like to check it out.

In the meantime, here is a link to open and then print the FREE EQ7 cutting directions for the Bear Paw block. EQ7 Bear Paw

And now, for Part 1 of this week’s BOW.

And now on to Part 2….
