Quilty as charged

I'm sure many of you 'suffer' from the same 'offence' of starting more quilts than you finish. For me quilting and sewing is probably more about enjoying the process of buying fabric, cutting it up and sewing it back together than about finishing something. Obviously I always have the intention of finishing a project and occasionally I manage to do just that :)

Now this fox pictured above is not part of a new quilt, it's a try out for a new quilt. I bought this lovely Fancy Fox Pattern by Elizabeth Hartman  as soon as it was released and I can't wait to make more foxes. The block is very easy to assemble which is a good thing as lap size quilt that I have in mind needs 42 fox blocks in total! The quilt in the pattern also features Liberty fabrics and it looks fab so I'm simply going to do something along the same lines.

A little while ago I wrote about my favourite Scrappy Quilt Patterns which included a mention of an attempt I made at making a Low Volume Postage Stamp Quilt. I'm perfectly capable of making these blocks but I just didn't have enough Low Volume fabrics. Anyway when I opened the shoebox where I had hidden my Postage Stamp Attempt it was much fuller than I expected! I have now continued my work on this quilt but it's not going to be just Low Volume anymore. I'm adding vertical and horizontal colourful strips in the blocks to make up for my lack of Low Volume fabrics. :)


  1. I finished the quilt top with the cute foxes some days ago. Yesterday I started to quilt it, and I has been so fun to sew the top and I am so looking forward to have it quilted and bound. I have posted some pictures of my quilt top on my blog. I have used some lovely flower prints from Japan for my blocks. It should be fun to see your quilt.
    Have a great day

  2. Wow! Yes, I am quilty charged as well, but my problem is that lately I don't even make it to blog what I've started, or finished... I love your low volume attempt, and those brights look good too! The foxes are going to be fab. I'm also going to do one with Liberties. Seems like a good way to cut into them!

  3. Sorry for the delay in commenting but love and have seen the fox quilt - love it.
    And you low volume postage stamp quilt, think I need to invest in more of these prints!!
