Found : :

Yesterday while rummaging through my collection of scrap holding vessels in search of more yellows to add to my new Autumn Sun quilt work in progress, I uncovered this long forgotten baby quilt project that I started more than a year ago! Discovered again at the most perfect timing, as my sister Catherine who lives far away in Hawaii just delivered a healthy baby boy during the night while all of us on the East Coast were fast asleep!

Woodland Celebration Baby Quilt

I referred to this baby quilt planning blog post to refresh my memory on where this one was headed, but already I'm considering a completely different direction, hmn? I do know that my love for this Reminisce inspired Pure Element solids bundle and the super cute & cozy FanFare flannel by Rae Hoekstra for Cloud9 Fabrics combination is definitely still there! Look how pretty!

Mmmm... I love these together! An AGF Pure Element bundle from Stash Fabrics and Made By Rae's new Fanfare collection for Cloud9 Fabrics!

After etsy order duties, turning these into a finished woodland celebration quilt for my new, baby nephew is priority number one!

Happy sewing!

  7. I love you blog and your ideas, am a grandmother who has taught 6 grand-daughters to sew via quilting. I only started about 5 years ago and we learned binding together on u-tube! Kids are so much fun!

  10. I'm new to your blog and just fell in LOVE with that adorable little fox! I'm assuming it's applique - do you have a template/tutorial that I missed somewhere? Or is it available on your Etsy site to purchase? My brother and sister-in-law just had their second baby boy on Tuesday and I'm just itching to make a little something for my nephew! The fox is just perfect :-)

  11. All the fabrics are wonderful but I think your first inspriation is the way to go. Whatever you decide can't wait to see.
    Congrats to the family for a healthy baby boy.
