Toby's Quilt

On Wednesday evening, there was a shower for a young Mom in our Church who had her first baby, Toby.  She was over for dinner a few months ago and I had her choose a fabric she liked.  She picked a lovely fabric called "Rusty and friends".  I used that fabric for the back of the quilt and chose solids to coordinate.  I used Elizabeth Hartman's pattern, Fancy Fox, and had so much fun making the different coloured foxes. (Click on the photo to enlarge for a better view :-)

This is the Rusty and Friends fabric with a coordinating print that I bought at another shop not realizing it was from the same line!
The finished fox quilt.
It was quilted with wavy lines with a King Tut variegated thread.
It was a good thing I had the mushroom fabric that matched as the quilt was larger than the backing fabric I had.  I found the green version of the mushroom fabric in a clearance bin at yet another quilt shop and used that for the binding.

Lovely!! I just purchased Hartman's Fancy Foxes for a Baby Quilt for my niece. She's expecting in Nov. I'm making her's in blues and turquoise since she's expecting a Boy. Will show you a pic when it's done. Guess Foxes are HOT right now!!
