Outfoxed Mini Quilt

Outfoxed Mini Quilt

Lizzy House's new line, Outfoxed, isn't even out yet, and I'm already convinced that it's going to be my favorite line of the year. To get myself through until the fabric is available, I picked up Lizzy's Outfoxed embroidery patterns and decided to make myself a mini quilt featuring the titular fox himself. I used a custom Cosmo floss bundle from The Workroom and a selection of Kona Cotton solids that will coordinate with the line. On a whim, I threw in some leaves from Kate Spain's Terrain collection.

I love it. Among so many ongoing and in-process projects for others, it was important for me to take the time and make this for myself. I can't wait to quilt it and finish it up.

  6. So nice! Similar to the 1001 Peeps mini quilt I'm working on. Not surprised you are liking this line. You *did* do foxes at the Heather Ross class! :)

  8. this looks fabulous! the konas pop really nicely together, and the outfoxed imagery is perfect for embroidery!
