Fox Napping de Deux



Peek a boo!  What does a Fox do to get Ready4Winter?

If I have my way, the Fox will be found Napping under or on top of a quilt...







This little Fox was found Napping under a pile of unquilted tops!!!!




Naughty Little FOX!!!




But he's just so CUTE! Who could stay mad?







This little Fox wanted to hibernate with the Raccoons from Ed Emberley's Picture Pie collection.

Weird.

I know.






"Fox Napping in Blue" finished at 40" x 46"
















What the FOX!!!



THERE ARE TWO!




This Fox Napping was a bit shy at first.

But the quilting allowed her to relax and snuggle in for the long winter ahead.








This Fox Napping was backed and bound in a patriotic Northcott text print.



"Fox Napping in Green" also finished at 40" x 46"




Each of these finished "Fox Napping" quilts can be found hibernating here in my Etsy shop.













I actually introduced the pattern back in February, but had not  completed the quilting on these tops until now. If you would like to make your own sweet little Fox Napping quilt, you can find the pattern here.

Goodbye Sweater Weather



Do you remember this Sweater Weather quilt?

I made this quilt and blogged about it in this post of October 2017



Sweater Weather was the result of being invited to submit a quilt for Quilty magazine. I used the Ugly Christmas Sweaters and revised the blocks to make them larger - life size even! And then added Mittens and Hats.





Imagine my surprise when it landed on the COVER!





I was so proud and HAPPY! What an enormous compliment! 

And then I think back to my trip to Houston Texas Quilt Market that I took part in that year. I was in Houston when my quilt was hanging at the Quilty magazine booth for the week. And I picked it up for the long drive back home at the end of the show. You can read about my Adventure to Texas and back with my sister here.






But why is this quilt laid out with the magazine now? And what are all the patterns about?
The Sweater Weather quilt was listed for sale in my shop. And it sold.

To a repeat customer. (My favourite kind of customer!)

You see.... The Ugly Christmas Sweaters was my first finish for 2016, and Theresa purchase it in August of that year.





I thought it would be nice to include my personal copy of the magazine, and a few patterns as a thank you gift. I am so touched that someone loved the first quilt they got from me so much.... They bought another! 





THANK YOU SO MUCH THERESA!!!










If you are interested, you can find the Sweater Weather PDF quilt patten here in my shopSave 50% on ALL SWEATER PDF patterns this week only!!! 




MEANWHILE....

RU Ready4Winter? I am NOW!



RU Ready4Winter?

I am NOW! This sweet squirrel quilt makes me feel all cozy just looking at it!





I am so pleased with the combination of fabrics used for this quilt!!!

The acorns in that background fabric?!!!!!





I am simply NUTS about this quilt!

Those little itty bitty paw prints?!!!!

Adorable... Especially on the binding.
















The backing is a bit of what was left of the paw prints and another sweet animal faces print I found lingering in my stash. Speaking of STASHES..... These squirrels certainly know how to pack their stash for the winter. Meanwhile, as much as I am trying to use mine up, every once in a while you gotta replenish!!!!



"RU Ready4Winter?" finished at 38" x 45"







This quilt is now listed in my shop, where you can find all of my quilted goods for sale.



















If you are interested in making your own,
RU Ready4Winter? Full Pattern

Or if you're just a little NUTS....You might like the RU Nuts? Single Block pattern instead
