WIP's With Friends

Here it is Wednesday again. 
 I seem to have been busy with lots of things but not a whole lot of sewing!  
I did manage to work on my little fox quilt so will show you the progress from that. 
 It is for a friend at work that is having a baby.

Started off making all the block pieces.


Finny and Cole were "helping" me.


They both fell asleep though.


Over the weekend I finished the blocks.  
Putting them together was a PIT butt. 
 I'm not sure if I was not reading the directions correctly or if they are not written clearly, or something, but I sewed and UN sewed many times before 
I finally just decided to put it on the design wall to get it right!


That blank spot in the photo above is where the fox went. 
 I got him all fused down and needed to sew around all the edges.

   
Once again, Finn thought he needed to "help" me with that!  
I did get all the edges sewn around using a blanket stitch.  


The last thing I had to do was embroider the eyes and the whiskers by hand.  
I got that finished too.


I went on the hunt for an appropriate Minky to use for the backing. 
I found the cutest fabric on ETSY.
I have ordered it and am waiting for it to arrive. 
 I will send it off to my long arm quilter to work her magic on. 
 I really want to get the binding made for this one and for one of the other quilts at her place too. 
 I plan on working on that this week.


If you need your own pattern of this, you can purchase it right here.  


I also need to work on the fish quilt for my husband.  
Shhhh don't tell him, but I really am not thrilled to be working with boring fish fabrics! 
 Hopefully he will enjoy it though.

I think the fox is cute - Finn more so! ;D
Pretty quilt - I prefer yours to the one on the pattern photo - more subtle greys perhaps?
