Forest Friends

Last June, Gail thecozyquilter@blogspot.ca and I embarked on a "Forest Fancy" adventure!
The pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman. I chose a lovely stack of Denyse Schmidt's "Hope Valley" that had been in my stash for a while. I had been waiting for the perfect project and decided this was it!

We decided to start with the simpler blocks and work up to ones with a gazillion pieces.

First came the foxes.

 Then the thistles

Some hedgehogs (aren't they cute?)

Bunny Rabbits


Coming together, about to put the fireflies together -which were a nightmare by the way!)
I did not get a picture of the fireflies on their own.

Finally, the completed Forest Fancy flimsy!

I am quite pleased with the results and am now pondering on how to quilt it!

Beautiful quilt top...we can forget now about how challenging the fireflies were...

Perfect fabrics for that quilt - very sophisticated take on the original.
