Fresh Forest Quilt & Giveaway

I’m always pumped when I get to share another finished project with you all!  This is my Fresh Forest quilt which I designed for the holiday issue of Stitch Craft Create.

Fresh Forest is made using Vintage Modern & Ruby fabrics–both by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.  This is the bundle of fabric that I used.

The quilting was done by Mary of Quilt Hollow.  She used an all over pattern which turned out beautifully.

Of course I went with a stripey binding–it totally reminds me of peppermints or candy canes…perfect for this quilt!

The folks over at Stitch Craft Create Magazine liked my design so much they asked me to make a 2nd quilt for them.  This time using Tilda fabrics.

I was very excited to work with the Tilda fabrics.  They’ve been on my radar for awhile now–they are fabulous in person.

The kit for the Tilda version of Fresh Forest can be found here.

And of course, SCC has been kind enough to send me an extra issue of Stitch Craft Create to give away to a lucky reader.  Just leave me a comment!

  • What a cute and refreshing looking quilt. I would love to make one like it, especially since we live in the woods.

  • Congratulations! I don’t think I would ever get tired of seeing my work in print. It’s a great quilt. Although, I love to decorate for Christmas, putting it all up and taking it down is exhausting (we do a lot of decorating at our house). Your quilt is perfect for Christmas, but subtle enough to be left up after the holidays.

  • I love both versions, what a happy quilt, I will need to search out this mag 🙂

  • The Tilda fabrics are too cute! Love them!
    They have been highly fashionable here in Germany for two or three years, and I’ve got several of the fabrics in my stash already. They are fabulous to work with and I have to hold myself back from buying more every time I walk by the collection at my local fabric shop. 🙂

  • Love it, love it, love it! I really like the Vintage Modern fabric line also.

  • Both versions are beautiful! Isn’t it amazing how the colors of the fabric change the feel of the quilt? Thanks for the chance to win the magazine.
