I already made this quilt!!! But I just HAD TO make it again!
You can see the original Fox among the Birches quilt post here.
I never used to have this problem. You see, I don't have the talent of being able to look at a stack of fabric and envision how it will look once cut up and pieced into a quilt. To help me with that problem I purchased the Electric Quilt (EQ7) program back in November of 2013. Last year I wrote about how much I have been enjoying using the EQ7 program and listed some of the things I like about it here in this post.
My problem now is that whenever I use the EQ7 program to draw up a new pattern design, and fill it in with different fabrics and colours, I alway end up making more than one colourway that I wind up wanting to make! Another reason I wanted to remake this quilt is that I had come up with a new way to piece the legs for the walking fox and shared about that at the Let's Bee Social in this post.
So now today I am sharing the Fox among the Birches using Kona Steel for the background instead of the Kona Mushroom.
I used a dark grey thread on top and plain white Gutermann thread in the bobbin. And I love how well it has blended in with the background and yet remained rather subtle across the orange foxes.
The background is Kona Steel. The birch trees are made from Minimalista by AGF Studio and a dark and light black smokey looking fabrics. The foxes are Kona Kumquat and Papaya.
The backing is a new stash addition (my first one this year!) from Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory and is called Out Foxed by Michael Miller Fabrics.
You can find the Fox among the Birches pdf pattern here in my shop.
Or do you ever have the compulsion to make more than one version of the same quilt?
