Festive Forest – An Early Holiday Quilt

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!

Linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at TGIFF.

This is also Finish #2 on my Q2 2015 FAL list.

  1. I just saw this collection in the hawthorne threads newsletter and thought of your quilt! It looks fantastic! I agree the foxes are adorable and I love that bird on blue branches print too. You chose a perfect pattern to appreciate their cuteness:).
