Are you ready for some serious cuteness!
I am officially IN LOVE with these foxes. Seriously. Last November I had a new client contact me looking to have a quilt made that she had seen on Pinterest for her new baby due in February. When She showed me the pin I knew the quilt and pattern maker right away! Kona Fox Kits by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.
A quick PDF pattern purchase and the amazing assistance of Pam at Mad About Patchwork, who cut the fabric kit for me and I was off to the races! Literally. I had one month to get this quilt done in time for baby. Now, usually a month is plenty for me, but life has been hectic, so I was making this one right up to the wire as they say.
I usually don't use the same fabric recommended in a pattern, liking to make it a bit of my own, but seeing that this quilt was a custom order, I did just that and can I say that Lorna's color choices for this quilt are amazing! The pattern was so detailed on how to use the colors too. I cannot recommend it enough.
I was very unsure about the quilting on this baby. I actually used the words "paralyzed with fear" at my Guild Sew In Day where I was working on this quilt. I likely should have quilted the tree to high light it, done something leafy with the leaves, and then highlighted those foxes. But that all just seemed like too much, and I was not up to experimenting with a custom order. So I stuck with my latest obsession and gave it some walking foot wavy lines. Best Decision EVER! Once out of the washer and dryer, the texture is astounding! Makes those foxes pop! It even makes a rather flat backing far more interesting
So, there you have it, my Fox Frenzy. Time to wrap this little one up with care to get in the post to it's new owner. I hope she will be as smitten with these foxes as I am!
