January ’17 OMG Finished

My January 2017 One Monthly Goal was to finish my modified Fancy Forest quilt top. This quilt is for a birthday present for my sister-in-law, Sharon, who will celebrate her 65th birthday in April. Sharon truly is a kid at heart, and she fell in love with the four fancy foxes I made last year, so I decided to add three Hazel Hedgehogs and two thistle blocks to make her a small custom quilt.

The quilt top measures 33″ x 43″, and after it is quilted and I square it up, the finished quilt will measure about 32″ x 42″. I thought about putting one or more borders to increase the size but decided I’d rather sacrifice size for a cleaner aesthetic. Because it is a smaller size quilt, I thought about quilting it myself with straight lines, but I’m going to let Michael at ThreadBear work his magic. Below is the fabric for the back which I think is perfect for Sharon especially since she loves bears.
