Hello Foxy



Hello Foxy. Nice to meet you!




I am so excited by this quilt. I thought there was no way I could make yet another fox quilt design. But this cute character makes me so happy! He's just so fun!




This little critter was a perfect opportunity to use the orange Link fabric by Alison Glass for Andover that I purchased from Clinton Modern Creative. It's a fun modern print that does a fantastic job of reading like a solid. And it was such a beautiful contrast to the background fabric that I found in my stash.




The background is Get Back in Blue from the Hello Love collection for Free SpiritThe quilting was performed using a variegated orange on top and plain white thread in the bobbin.






The backing is Out Foxed by Michael Miller Fabrics. It was a new stash addition at the beginning of last year. I used some of this on a Fox among the Birches quilt you can see here.... And I still have enough left for one more quilt.




Just want to apologize now for the fuzzy spot on most of these photos. It was a warmer day than the last photo shoot. But it was snowy and a bit blustery. I got some snow on the camera lens and did not notice until I uploaded the photos to the computer. 





This quilt was such a fun and quick make. 

And I am looking forward to making the matching mini quilt soon!



The "Hello Foxy" quilt finished at 36" x 44"
and was the 66th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

Howling in the New Year!



This is the Buffalo Plaid Wolves quilt. My first finish for 2018! 




The pattern comes with instructions for a sitting wolf and a laying wolf.

I decided to include both.











The backing is Flannel in Windowpane and Tattersail by Local Color Flannel and match both the blue Grunge Dots from the front. Except for the binding, all the fabrics for this quilt were recent purchases shared in this post.




The outdoor photo shoot didn't last long. There are no glamour shots of this quilt laying in the snow or draped across the railing on the side porch. It was SO COLD! And my fingers were in excruciating pain. So the remaining photos were taken indoors.




When it came time to consider what to choose for the binding, I found this silver flecked piece in my stash. It's from the Artisan Spirit Shimmer collection by Northcott Fabrics. 




The quilting was performed using a blue variegated Magnifico Thread from Superior Threads on top and plain white Gutterman thread in the bobbin.




The "Buffalo Plaid Wolves" quilt finished at 52" x 68"
and was the 65th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

Let's Bee Social # 211

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

Another week has come and gone.... I have been spending a lot of time with my mom lately. She had to go for eye surgery this past week. I may not have been able to sit and sew much... But my brain is quilting ALL the time!

Today I am sharing this new pattern Hello Foxy.

The pattern comes with instructions to make either a baby quilt that finishes at 36" x 44" or a mini quilt finishes at 24" x 24".

This one is a quick make and I had a chance this past weekend to choose and cut the fabric one night and sew it up the next day.

Let's Bee Social #210

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

HAPPY NEW YEAR all!

Things have been really busy. Both quilting and life in general. Just chuggin' along!

Today I am sharing this new pattern Choo Choo Train.





The pattern comes with instructions to make either a quilt that finishes at 40" x 48" or a table runner or pillow that finishes at 18" x 48"





I haven't actually had a chance to make it myself yet. But I did get to see the one made by Dorothy. She requested a train pattern to make something for her grandson for Christmas. And she made him a big pillow that he loved!

Now Dorothy has found this to have helped her to join us here in blogland! She just started her new blog Quilts by Dorothy and I am encouraging you all to stop by and visit her today. Let's Bee Social and welcome her to our world!


If you are interested you can find the Choo Choo Train pattern here.



THANK YOU to all of you who took advantage of the year end sale. Your support is greatly appreciated. As are all of the words of encouragement you have shared in comments and emails since I announced that I would be starting a new life this year. Your friendship means so much to me and you are why I keep on creating! Thank you all so much!
