To-Do #1

Over the holiday weekend, I quilted and bound my Modified Fancy Forest Quilt (original pattern by Elizabeth Hartman). I quilted simple wavy lines and was able to avoid quilting over the black eyes and noses. I’m so glad to have finished this 27″ x 39.5″ wall hanging. These foxes and hedgehogs just make me smile.

To-Do #2

For Sharon’s North Star quilt, I chose to make the bear block using brown grunge fabric for the bear. I had fun fussy cutting squares and rectangles out of Tim Holtz’ Christmas Carol fabric. And I raided my Christmas fabric bins and found the cardinal fabric with a light brown background and some olive green snowflake fabric. The bear looks darker in the photo below than it actually is.

I have all the pieces cut for the next North Stars block. I’ll keep you all in suspense until next week regarding which block I decided to make next 🙂

  1. Make the second block for the North Stars quilt for my sister-in-law, Sharon.
  2. Start cutting fabric for the third North Stars block.

    Hi Mary! Oh, that bear looks so realistic yet not scary. Nice job on the quilt top! And, of course, I think the hedgehogs are so darn cute. Good look with this week’s list. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Both of these quilts are so cute. The foxes and hedgehogs are fun, I particularly like the fox in the upper left. The bear quilt is clever – I might have to keep that one in mind!
