FO: Furry Forest Friends

It’s a week of finished objects so buckle up…

Furry Forest Friends? What FO is this, you must be asking….

Well, the other day, I found myself with a free afternoon, so of course, I wanted to sew. I really should have put the Happy Camper top together, but as I’ve said before, piecing tops isn’t really my favourite part of quilting. I wanted something small to work on. I had an empty project box, so why not start something new?

I’d been eyeing up my Chocolate Covered Pinwheels quilt the other day… it was one of my first quilts, and it really shows. I knew I could make much better pinwheels now. So I pulled out a fat quarter pack I’ve been itching to play with…

But as soon as I ironed out those woodland creature prints, I knew I couldn’t chop them up into itty bitty pinwheel pieces.

Just look at those cute characters! So instead, I kept those blocks large, chopped up the accent fabrics, chopped up some pink solid, and turned them into four patches. And before I knew it…

I had a top for a baby blanket done!

I didn’t intended to quilt it so soon, but I took it up to Mom’s when I went to quilt Honey Patch. I wanted her opinion on how to quilt it. In the end, we both agreed, diagonal lines would look cute, so while I was quilting Honey Patch on the long arm, Mom put a walking foot on one of her smaller machines and got to work.

The result is a sweet little baby quilt that’s stunning in it’s simplicity.

It was such a fun, fast little project.

Made even better by the fact that I was able to use up the last of my Holly Hobby flannel on the back!

  1. Simply beautiful! As a child, I wore a pink and brown winter coat, that was reversible. And my mother knitted me pink and brown mittens and hat, and I was so stylish (in my mind) back in the day! I still love pink and brown together, go figure…

    What an adorable quilt! That was the perfect way to use those beautiful character fabrics. Quilting is just perfect for the design. What a nice gift this will be for some lucky child.
