Marcia's Birthday Quilt...

To Celebrate Marcia's Birthday
Members of the Mary's River Quilt Guild
Made Bears Paw Quilt Blocks
with Civil War Reproduction Fabrics.

Just thought you might like to see Marcia with her Quilt Top:

Happy Birthday Marcia !

Updated Quilt:

The quilt needed to be adjusted to fit the bed and borders were added when Marcia went to Kentucky. They were able to add the half square triangles to the border as we had originally planned. Here is the beautiful result.

Next up quilting!
