But this is my third time making the Fox & Friends equilateral triangle quilt. This quilt will be the sample quilt brought to class when I teach at the Kincardine Sunset Quilters' Guild this fall. It was just as much fun making this time as it was the first. And it was a much quicker process! Experience can work in my favour if not too much time has passed. You can see the first Fox & Friends here and the second finish here.
I chose a darker grey for the raccoons and one darker shade of blue for the background. But all are Kona Cotton Solids. Would have gone with a green background this time..... But the backing fabric persuaded me into sticking with the blue!
The owl minky backing was still in (my stash) from the second quilt made back in September of 2014. I could not resist using it again. It's so soft! And suits the colours of the front so well.
And for the binding, I wanted to change things up a bit. Last time I used Kona Black for the binding. This time I dug into and picked out this lovely blue Chicken Wire Texture from the Bright and Early collection by Evelia for Wilmington Prints. Gives it a softer edge and blends in so nicely with the background. This print hasn't been hanging around for long. I just picked it up in May from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop during their Mother's Day Sale.
This Fox & Friends quilt was the 50th use of my 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.
