Forest Fables blog hop (+giveaway!)

blog hop logo

I actually have two baby quilt tops to show you today, both made out of this great new in-house line from Hawthorne Threads, Forest Fables. I’ve been aware that Hawthorne Threads have been designing and printing their own fabrics for some time now, but I had yet to have a chance to use any, so when they asked me to take part in their blog hop, I took a quick peek at the prints and then said yes!

forestfables2

The prints in this line are inspired by two fables – the Three Billy Goats Gruff and Chicken Little, and I love the details included in all of these prints. The kids, in particular, have declared the Billy Goats Gruff print as their favorite and pointed out every spot I used that print in my quilt!

forestfables

I selected a few prints from the Glade palette – I wasn’t sure what I’d make, but I selected more of the basic prints, which are what I’m drawn to for quilting.

forestfables7

As the fabric is digitally printed, it does have a different feel than what you may be used to with regular quilting cotton. Hawthorne Threads recommends prewashing, which will soften the hand, and they also recommend using a sharper needle due to the higher thread count (I didn’t do either, as I’m no good at following directions, but didn’t have any problems while sewing).

forestfables6

The first quilt I made uses just a bit of the fabrics, paired with Robert Kaufman’s Essex yarn dyed linen in indigo.

forestfables5

It’s based on a pattern I saw on a floor once, and I drew up my own paper pieced pattern piece, though afterwards I realized it’s also similar to the Arkansas Traveler block, so you could use that template if you wanted to make something similar.

forestfables3

Once I realized how much fabric I had left (I started with a fat quarter of each of these prints) I decided to make up a second quilt top. I opted to use one of my older free patterns, Rectangle Squared, and was able to make up a second baby sized quilt. I was reminded at how quickly this quilt comes together. I had all the blocks made in one afternoon, so if you’re looking for a quick project, you might give this one a try!

forestfables4

I think at least one of these quilts will have this fun print on the backing – hopefully I can get that finished up so I can report back on how this quilt washes up! Five more weeks till baby #3 though — we’ll see how much I can get done before his arrival!

    I hardly ever reply to your blogs but I am an avid reader (and probably should show that a little more by replying more often..). You couldn’t have done a better job in advertising your pattern: I like it very much this way and am eager to try my hand at it. Thank you for introducing me to the digital prints.

    Love the fabric from Hawthorne threads — they always have the best selection of modern fabrics and I’ve been a fan of their scrap bundles for quite a few years –good quality fabric and a taste of what’s new in the quilting world without spending a lot of money. Since scrappy quilts are about all I make nowadays these add a fresh look to my quilts. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Both quilts are beautiful! I bookmarked (and later pinned) the rectangle squared pattern years ago. I love how it looks with these fabrics. I’m also pregnant with number three (though not due until the summer) so maybe I’ll use that pattern for this little one. Hope the end of your pregnancy goes smoothly!
