(30) x 1870-80 – Mystery Bears Paw Variation Antique Quilt Blocks – 8.5″ x 8.5″ – Original Design?
This is a very interesting set of (30) x 1870-80’s BEARS PAW VARIATION or BASKET BLOCK VARIATION hand pieced antique quilt blocks.
Tbh I poured over BB’s bible and could not for the life of me find this pattern – so by all means message me if you find it and I will update the description!
I purchased this set of blocks during 2007 from Kenton, Ohio: USA.
These blocks measure 8.5” x 8.5” and include indigo blue, turkey red, double pink, fugitive purple, chocolate brown fabrics with cheddar corner patches…..all very typical of that era.
I rescued these blocks from a well-worn tied comforter in which the cheddar setting blocks were stained and torn and hence threatening the integrity of the blocks themselves.
What I found interesting is that the maker had actually arranged her blocks individually with a setting block in between….yet my mind makes much more sense of this pattern with the blocks arranged in this way!
The fabrics have worn quite thin so any quilt made from these blocks would be for display purposes only.
There is wear and minor stains as mentioned with no odours noted.
If you have any questions re these blocks then please message me before bidding and I will do my be best to answer them.
Remember this item is over 100 years old so won’t be in perfect condition….please see all photos.
This item comes from a non-smoking household with no pets coming into contact with the quilts.
I am very happy to combine shipping to save you on postage.
I will take returns for any reason so please message me if you have any issues or problems with your order.
