Fancy Fox

Isn’t this adorable!   This quilt was made by the WAQG bee called The Wannabees,  for their biennial donation to the MD Anderson Quilt Project  that they hold every 2 years.   Some of their quilts travel to different locations and guild shows to promote their auction (proceeds to cancer research).   They also have a huge booth @ Houston Quilt Festival.   Quilts will be displayed there this year and next year, then the auction will be maybe a month after Festival next year.   2 years to collect and promote.   You should see the Cherrywood exhibit they have going right now.  (I looked for a link but not seeing it online yet, friends have posted photos)   Amazing talent in that exhibit!    It’s such a good  cause, not only do we help raise funds, quilting is also being brought into the spotlight and our local talents can shine!

This year the bee worked on a fun, whimsical quilt that will be treasured by some lucky person.   I used Leisha Farnworth “Kindling” design, hand guided panto to create a fur like effect and create lots of texture and consistent quilting.   I see this being a quilt used on a bed, well loved.

You know you want this!    Be sure to follow along and be ready for the bidding next year.  Hopefully this cutie will be hanging at the MD Anderson booth next month and you can see it in person then.    These patterns have really created lots of interest in the quilting home dec world, there is Fancy Fox, Forest Friends, Hedgehogs…. such cute patterns.
