Clever Companions

Dear Readers,

My niece had a baby in July.  So I found out her theme was woodland animals.  So, since I loved the fox designed by Elizabeth Harman, I decided to use that.  I had bought her pattern Fancy Forest about a year before.  If you need her book/pattern you might want to check out her page here.

I decided to do it in soft clear colors with a grunge for the background.  I mostly used my scrappy stash for this.  I did buy the grunge for the background.   I found a cute print for the backing that had forest friends on it.  I also made a pillow slip and a crib sheet to send to her too.

I was telling one of my friends, Theresa Pino (an award winning quilter) about the quilt and she suggested I quilt it with a wood grain would give the animals some feel of fur and variety in texture.  I decided to do that!  I quilted this on the sit down quilter.

Here are some close ups of the quilting and the back.

Called this one "Clever Companions".  Enjoy James Dwight S.

Sew long,
