Natures hiding place

I'm linking up to Amys creative sides blogger festival with this post.


Walking thru the woods this fall inspired me to make this art quilt.

I loved making it so much I decided to make it into a pattern to sell on craftsy.

I've been working on this thing for a month and it's still not done. I keep making new versions so the pattern keeps getting put on the back burner. You see it's far more fun to make a quilt than a boring old pattern :-)


I take tons of photos on my walks and this is the one that inspired me on this quilt.





This one has leaves made of cut up yarn and is small. - the size of a 8.5 x11 paper.

See, I am at least thinking of a pattern.


This one is a little bigger - for those midnight cat patrols


And finally, today I blew up the original 8.5 x11 pattern 200% and am doing a winter scene.

What is addicting about this is finding little creatures for the hiding place - I have a raccoon or a fox for this winter one.

Stay tuned for the finish :-)

Quilt Happy!



  1. I love your idea of the hidey hole and taking it to the next level and the next. And I do so love the pumpkin from the last post! Great job peoples. maybe next year they will REALLY get into it.

  2. They look fabulous...I also take heaps of pics when I walk....and that's just about it...maybe I'll turn them into something one day.
