Today, I finally took the plunge, and I’m so glad I did. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. My first block came together in just a few hours, and for future ones, I’ll cut several at once.
I’ve been known to toss around a few f bombs, especially when I make mistakes that involve having to haul out the seam ripper. So, when someone at my guild showed their beautiful ‘Fancy Fox’ quilt (design by Elizabeth Hartman) I knew I had to give it a try.
Elizabeth’s patterns are well done and easy to follow. My oldest and I loved watching Fred the fox come together. In true tween girl style, she choose some unicorn fabric to mix in with it. We just did a simple 5×5 inch blocks style to go with Fred, and equally as simple stitch in the ditch to finish it up.
A lovely lady in my quilt guild (Calgary Modern Quilt Guild http://calgarymqg.blogspot.ca/ ) was selling fat quarter bundles of Tula Pink’s Eden line (http://www.tulapink.com/eden/ ) , and I couldn’t say no. The colors and prints are so different from what I’m normally attracted to, but they pull you in and are gorgeous to look at, so I had to just go with it.
My oldest daughter was head over heels for the flashy prints and gorgeous hues and quickly claimed this collection as hers.
I didn’t have a pattern in mind, but at the last guild meeting, member Cheryl Arkison (http://www.cherylarkison.com/ ) had brought in some of her pieces. One was a triangle quilt made with all kinds of bright fun patterns, so that’s what inspired mine.
