Free-motion foxy

Last weekend I had breakfast out with three of my quilty friends, who then came over to continue the gossip over tea and bakery treats. Janine (whose husband says she carries a little black hole with her) managed to leave her copy of The Enchanted Forest and take my copy of The Secret Garden.

When I saw Mr Foxy (or maybe it’s Ms Foxy, I’m not sure), I knew I had to try to free-motion him/her. I tried the Aurifil Lana (pictured) but didn’t have a big enough needle for the S16, so went back to Aurifil 40 weight cotton…

And here she is – the fabulous Ms Fox! (Less fabulous Ms Fotographer – that’s white fabric with a stunning orange thread).

I only traced the outline and drew a couple of guidelines as you can see. I think she’s looking lonely though – I’m going to have to pore through the book for more inspiration.

  1. There is so much quilty inspiration in Johanna’s books, can’t wait for the next one…under the sea. Love Ms Fox
