I changed the fabric for the sashings and center cornerstone on the block. I like this a lot better. However, I don't think I have enough of the gray and white stripe for all the blocks. I'll play this by ear, but I hope to find a similar shirt somewhere out there.
I will try the black for the larger sashings between blocks. I am adding the original block below to compare them. This lets the actual Bear's Paw shape stand out, which is what I wanted.
