A few weeks ago, a fellow MMQG who also happens to design fabric for Michael Miller, asked me if I’d be interested in making something with her newest fabric collection and blog about it.
I just love Tamara’s designs so of course, I immediately said YES! And Festive Forest doesn’t disappoint. The prints are adorable; the colours are bright and happy.
I wanted a pattern that would let those beautiful prints shine so I picked Patio from The Happy Zombie.
I used a white solid so the fabric would pop and used 12 fat quarters for the blocks.
I quilted it with big flowers in a really subtle pink thread. Now that it’s been washed and dried, the texture is amazing. The finished size is 62” x 82”.
Festive Forest is shipping to shops right now. If you’re looking for a holiday collection that doesn’t scream Christmas, this is it! I mean seriously – how adorable are these little foxes with the sweaters?
Thank you so much for allowing me to play with your fabric Tamara!
