Fancy Foxes

I had bought a kit to make  for a Fancy Fox quilt quite a while ago from Whimsy Quilts & Fabrics. so I decided it was time to get moving.  I love Elizabeth Hartman's animal patterns and had made some of her other animal blocks. I had made up some Fox blocks as a test maybe a year ago. These 4 test blocks eventually got made into a tote bag by a lovely friend.

This quilt has a background of Michael Miller Pinhead Dots in Fog, with the foxes made from many different orange, rust coral and red fabrics.  I wanted a larger size than the kit made up, so I gathered a few extra fabrics than provided in the fabric bundle.
The pattern is borderless, and I have yet to see it otherwise but I wanted a border to add a bit if size and to keep the foxes contained. I chose the darkest fox fabric for this, and am happy with how this works.

The label is a white fox so I guess he is an Arctic Fox.
Size:64 inches by 74 inches
This is quilt finish No 8 for this year.


  1. I love the foxes!! You've done a great job and I think it's better with the border to, as you say, contain the foxes!!

    1. Thanks Clare. I am really happy with how it turned out.
