Sugar Bear is a spin on the traditional and popular bear claw block. Instead of using half square triangles as the "claws", this pattern uses half rectangle triangles, giving it a more modern look.
Sugar Bear is also a sampler quilt (every block is unique) and meant to read and worked through as a quilt along. Most of the fabric cutting will take with each block, though we will cut all the background prior to working on the blocks.
Since I've written this as a quilt along, you'll notice at the bottom of most pages is a green box that will take you to a blog post with pictures, tips and tutorials for each block. This way you can work through the quilt in your own time and still get the feeling of working on your quilt with me.
This quilt is made easier with the use of the Half Rectangle Triangle Ruler by Southern Charm Quilts, find it here.

The booklet is full page size which is great as it is easy to read and keep track of (I'm messy). The directions are clear and easy to follow with embeded links to videos for tips and helpful info. Recommend this pattern for quilters with some experience as the half rectangle rectangles are a bit challenging but not that difficult if you follow the diagrams and tips.
Looks a bit complicated for me at this point, but I'm adding it to my other beautiful paper quilt patterns! It's a wonderful pattern and I'll look forward to making it!
Love the modern twist on this quilt block. Pattern instructions are well done, complete with pictures for us that need visuals. Highly recommend.
