Update for Forest Friends quilt pattern and Let’s Bee Social # 97

Posted on: November 4th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon
Fox #1 quilt blocks finish at 8″ x 8″

I am FINALLY myself testing these Forest Friends quilt blocks. And am making 5 at a time. Enough to make both the TWIN and BABY quilts. These blocks are being made with the Cotton Couture kindly donated by Michael Miller Fabrics in support of this project.

Working on my little Janome for the piecing

Here is how my work area looked on Tuesday morning. Middle of making the sitting Fox blocks. And I was not able to make much progress because of preparations for my next trunk show! Yay!

Fox #2 quilt blocks in progress

Tonight and tomorrow morning I will be in Ingersoll, Ontario with the Oxford Quilters’ Guild. I am so looking forward to meeting the ladies at Ingersoll’s Creative Arts Centre. And talking about quilts!

NOW. For those of you who simply CANNOT wait, or who only want certain blocks from the Forest Friends quilt pattern, beginning today the American Eagle and Canadian Beaver (and a few of the other) quilt blocks can be purchased separately from my Pattern Shop here.

Great news for those who are asking what can be done to make this quilt without using the American Eagle OR the Canadian Beaver……..

Just make him a Golden Eagle!

Still working on testing all the blocks before releasing the final Forest Friends pattern which will include instructions for ALL of the blocks. Thank you so much for all the lovely compliments here and over on Instagram. And for your patience!

    This one has to be my favorite one of your quilts so far! (well, except for the Little Blooms quilt) I really love the look of a mixed block or sampler quilt. I saw your version with the American eagle first, and I was a little perplexed until I saw the Canadian beaver post after that… this looks like a super fun quilt!

  6. Preeti says:

    Your foxes are adorable. Your choice of fabrics and their placement is perfect – looks like sunlight falling on the foxes. Kudos to you!!!

  7. Lisa J. says:

    I'm really liking that Canadian Beaver, eh!

  8. My goodness, Lorna, those foxes are so, so cute! All of your animals are cute, but I think the foxes might be my favourite so far. Have fun at the trunk show. Meeting quilters sounds like a great way to spend time 🙂
