Good friends of our got married this weekend. Holly, the bride, likes foxes (i.e. "For Fox Sake!") so when I saw the Sleepy Fox pattern by @3rdstoryworkshop I knew it was perfect.
The fox is foundation pieced and went together very easily, though the Art Gallery fabrics I used were very unforgiving. I use freezer paper to foundation piece and I've never had a problem before, but this time, I struggled to get the fabric to feed evenly though the machine. There are a couple of places where I'm not totally happy, but once washed you won't ever know.
I quilted it up with some matchstick quilting in the background on the diagonal. This inevitably led to quite a bit of distortion, however, the finished cushion would have been larger had I not been an idiot when trimming....
I added the eyes with a small amount of hand embroidery and a cushion back using the same tutorial I turn to every time by Adrianne @adrianneonthewindyside. It is foolproof and magical and gives such a neat finish.
This is a Finish Along finish. You can find my original list here.
