Just when I vowed to not buy fabric for a while, a new line of fabric comes along and I just simply couldn’t resist. It always seems to happen like that. Even though I knew I had plenty of fabric in my possession, I could not fight the urge. Congratulations Hoo’s in the Forest, you win this round.
I found some great precuts and a couple of supplementary yards and there was no turning back. Hoo’s in the Forest is a line by Doohikey Designs and it is manufactured by Riley Blake Designs.
I made this quilt out of my unnecessary fabric purchase. It is 35 inches wide and just over 56 inches long. The prints are so cheerful I think I enjoyed ever step of the process. This fabric features adorable skunks, owls, deer, frogs, and even hedgehogs. Honestly, what is not to love?
I did some diagonal quilting lines to add to the vertical lines along the seams, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. The quilting sort of reminds me of a blanket I was attached to as a toddler/child/young adult. Yes, I was that kid, but that is a story for another time.
Remember you can always support my fabric addiction by stopping by our little store. Hopefully this quilt will find a loving home soon! Update: It did find a wonderful home almost immediately! I guess I am not the only one loving this fabric.
