Bear Path | A Quilt Pattern


I’m so excited to introduce Bear Path, Patchwork & Poodle’s FOURTH pattern!!

Buy Bear Path.


As with every pattern release, I work really hard to make each one as perfect as I can so that you can have the best pattern making experience! That includes making multiple versions myself to iron out any tweaks.


The first Bear Path I made was as a baby gift for my sister. Although I liked the first design, I kept playing with it and tweaking it until I really loved it! Bear Path is a play on the Bear Paw block, it is composed of 4 big blocks and sashing and comes together really quickly. It is a great beginner quilt pattern that walks you through every step with plenty of diagrams!


Pattern Stats:

  • 4 sizes included: wall hanging, baby, throw, and bed
  • beginner friendly
  • fast pattern that can easily be completed in a weekend!
  • diagrams walking you through every step

I’ve made 4 versions of this pattern so far! That’s how fun and fast it really is!

Cover Quilt:

a8bd248e-e08d-4d9c-a15c-a72887fa9474My cover quilt is made from Paintbrush Studio Fabrics fabulous solids (Painter’s Palette solids). These have quickly become my go-to solids, because they are really soft, have wonderful drape, hand-quilt beautifully, and have amazing saturated colors!



  • Color 1: Azure
  • Color 2: Abyss
  • Color 3: Turquoise
  • Color 4: Wasabi
  • Background: White
  • Binding: Abyss
  • Backing: Bloom by Tracey Wirth for Paintbrush Studio Fabrics

I hand-quilted the entire quilt with Aurifil 12 wt thread, and hand-bound it in big-stitch hand-binding.

Other Versions:

These all deserve their own blog post, but I can’t help mentioning them here as well.
