Forest Fantasy

Forest Fantasy
I mentioned several months ago that this would be the next quilt I'd be working on.  My good friend and hiking buddy, CF, picked out this pattern and asked that it be done in blues, greens, and browns.  I'm using Art Gallery Fabrics, mostly from the Nature Elements, Oval Elements, and Pure Elements lines and probably some random solids that I don't feel safe attributing to the Pure Elements line.  This is a pattern that requires a lot of prep work and cutting to start, but it will really come together quickly when the prep work is done.

There is, however, always significant opposition in letting the prep work go smoothly.

Pretty colors
 The first step is to strip piece and make 196 pairs of brown and colored fabric. Next, they come together to make squares like so...

98 squares
And, finally 98 squares come together.  The next step will be a sea of HSTs.  I know, I'm excited too.


  1. Nice of kitty to keep you company. I've looked at that Debbie Mumm book several times, but it hasn't made it home yet. I'm anxious to see your finished quilt!

  2. Hehe, your helpers are so helpful :)
    I've been looking forward to seeing your project with the elements line. Looks good so far
