Elizabeth Hartman released her Fancy Fox pattern a while ago now and I have already made some pillows and mini quilts using this pattern, but I really wanted to make a quilt using these very cute fox blocks.
After seeing a few of these fox quilts made in various shades of orange, I decided to do the same and found enough orange prints to make the blocks when I dug through my stash of fabrics.
There are fabrics from Denyse Schmidt, Emma Jean Jansen, Bonnie and Camille, Tula Pink, Lizzy House, Cotton & Steel, and Alison Glass to name a few!Pre-cutting all of the fabrics made putting these blocks together very quick and easy .
I have made a 5 x 6 layout so only needed 30 foxy blocks.
Then I have added borders to make the quilt up to lap size of about 50 x 62".
I used the Serpentine stitch on my sewing machine to do the quilting down the length of the quilt.
And like the "Quick Brown Fox" pillow I made last year, my favourite is probably the Henna Garden fox, closely followed by the one made from the B&C Hello Darling strawberries.
The backing is a Cloud 9 "Scribbles in Orange" print by Ed Emberley, which I didn't quite have enough of so added a strip of the Ikea numbers fabric down the side.And I found a B&W woodgrain print which I think was just perfect for the binding.
