Fancy Fox Quilt

Boy it has been hard to keep this quilt a secret! I’ve been dying to show you photos along the way but now that Christmas is over and I’ve finally given it to my sis, I can show it off!

Colorful Fancy Fox Quilt

I made this Fancy Fox Quilt for my sis for Christmas and it’s definitely the most adventurous quilt I’ve ever done! I am so excited with how it turned out though.

If you’re not familiar with the pattern it’s the Fancy Fox Quilt Pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. Elizabeth has such amazing patterns – these foxes, hedgies, whales, flowers – even a fabulous Sasquatch quilt! I made the twin size of the Fancy Fox quilt minus one horizontal row. It’s still plenty big!

Cute Fox in Glasses Quilt

I love that she provides a glasses template too – I had to put that on three of the foxes. Just enough so that it adds a little whimsy to the quilt!

For the fabrics I used a jelly roll of Moda’s 30’s Playtime favorites – it’s a great mix of lots of vintage inspired daisy prints. Which is my sis’s favorite flower so that was fun. I used one of the yellow and white prints for the binding and a green floral for the backing. I quilted it with a wood grain free motion, also a first for me.

Front and Back of Fox Quilt

I think I did the quilting too small, or condensed. It’s definitely not coming undone haha! I also think I did the binding backwards. This was the first time I’d hand sewn the binding and instead of sewing it to the front and hand sewing it down to the back, I did it the opposite way. So I’ll change that up for next time.

Vintage Style Fabric Fox Quilt

I also added a little label on the back, with a little of the fabric from the sashing and some embroidery!

I can’t wait to make more of Elizabeth’s patterns – I think now that I’ve pieced this one together I’ll have an easier time with the next one!

    Oh my goodness, that is stunning. You make me laugh pointing out mistakes when the rest of us are just all “wow!”

    Beautiful! I’ve seen a few pictures on social media of people making these. Such a fun design and I love that you added the glasses to 3 of the foxes. I’ve made one very small (crib size for my baby girl) quilt and am in awe of anyone that can make one larger. It’s a lot of work and love!

    Love the design. I have a hard time with the binding still. But, getting am better at it. I just finished a baby quilt. I haven’t shared it yet though. Pinned & shared. Thanks for joining in to share at the Inspiration Spotlight party. See you again soon!
