An archive of sewing tutorials and inspiration


Mr. Fox by Samantha Davis // Project Feature

I find it so encouraging to see what you’re making with the help or inspiration of Pile O’ Fabric tutorials or Aria Lane patterns. Last week I was thinking about my blogging plans for 2014 and decided it would be really fun to feature some of the awesome projects I come across for all of you to see. Today’s project feature will be the first of many.

Meet Mr. Fox by Samantha Davis

11734415075_1ed14e62c0_o[6]Inspired by the Cross Stitch Quilt Block Tutorial, Samantha made a super cute fox quilt. This adorable quilt features a mix of linen, low volume fabrics, various orange prints, and a few black text prints. Screen Shot 2014-01-14 at 9.50.17 AMSamantha added some minimal hand quilting using orange variegated Aurifil thread in 28wt, which really helps the Fox remain the main focus. The finished quilt measures 20” x 19.5”, making a perfect mini quilt.

You can get all the details of Samantha’s process for making this quilt on her blog Making Life Prettier.

Thank you Samantha: for sharing such a cute quilt and for your further inspiration of using the Cross Stitch Quilt Block.
