Dana started with the cute tent block and Susannah Kate added the fox, feather and cool borders. Then Amy added the awesome campfire and lantern portion. I knew I wanted to make the quilt a little wider and I had this vision of arrows to help fill the tall space. I figured I could make up a pattern for those, so I bought this bear block on craftsy and decided to start with the more straight forward block before getting all creative!
I had some of the Indian Summer fabric that Dana used in her tent block background and also some of the orange arrow fabric (cloud 9, maybe?) that Amy had used, so I was happy to add those in. The bear is a 5.5" block which made for some itty bitty pieces. I probably should have enlarged it a bit to make the sewing easier, but he came out just fine!
My arrows were challenging, but after a lot of trimming and some fun with the seam ripper, I finally got everything to line up (ish)!
Then I framed everything in Joel Dewberry navy herringbone from the Modern Meadow collection and added a block of the Indian Summer Menagerie print. My final touch was a strip of the orange print from Full Moon Lagoon. I had wanted to mimic some of Susannah Kate's triangle borders, but it was starting to look really busy, so I thought I better stop!
I sure hope Dana likes it!
