FANCY FOREST

I never jump on the bandwagon as soon as a pattern comes out.
I have to look at it and let it simmer in my mind
to make sure I want to give it a try.
Like the Elizabeth Hartman patterns.

I need some new pieces for a quilt show coming November 2017.
MY own show, a local garden has asked me to do!
More on that later!

Sew...I pulled some fabrics...


to make this up in a wall hanging size!



 These orange and green colors are
very forestry...in my minds eye!


Selecting the background was the hardest...
as all 3 could work!



Lots of cutting and bagging plus I found...
a new use for Wonder Clips


I enjoy auditioning the colors...for a green owl!



and an orange owl!



The firefly has to most pieces...
should be an interesting sew!


 For now they are all packaged up in little kits!
I want to make a small design board to keep the pieces on
as I sew the blocks together.



I like these and the free tutorial I found here
from Bee in my Bonnet.

Gonna make one animal at a time 
sew not to exasperate myself!


Til later...I may get lost in the forest!

  4. I started Fancy Forest this week. I purchased the book and It has been on my mind for a long time. The my lqs Village Mercantile offered fat-eights of 40 fabrics so I dove in. They used multiple colors and I really like it. It is a tricky pattern with mirror image angles. At times I was unsewing as much as I was sewing. It is a fun pattern and I hope to finish in a few days for a friend's baby. Your colors are beautiful.
