Mr. Fox Quilt

Got a serious case of tunnel vision this weekend and managed to turn this stack into this...


I am so, SO happy with how it turned out. And the hubby loved it too, which made me glow :)  Pictures don't do it justice, but the richness of colors and patterns is so lovely in person.

We have pretty similar tastes so he likes most everything I make, but it feels extra good to make something for our baby that we're both so happy with :) (if you want to see pictures of the nursery theme - Fantastic Mr. Fox - click here)


And can I just say, is there anything AMH fabric won't fix? Her fabric is like the baking soda of the textile world (or should I say the Windex of the My Big Fat Greek Wedding world? lol) - it's a fix-all for every problem. I didn't originally include this Field Study print because I thought there was too much pink for it to work, but after a bout with insomnia at 1 am where I spent almost 2 hours laying this quilt out on my design wall, I just couldn't get it right. No matter how I moved things around, the colors weren't working together like I'd hoped, so I chopped up that Field Study print and mixed it in - voila! Instant perfection. Oh Anna Maria, you crafty fabric designing genius you!

One more for good measure? Yum. Color.

  8. Love the quilt! My son's middle name is Fox, so I'm obsessed with all of the fox fabrics out there. Love what you're doing with the nursery.
