Forest Frolic by Heidi Boyd for Red Rooster Fabrics

At Spring Market this past May I met a lovely person and talented designer.  Her first fabric line – Forest Frolic -  is released this month and I was lucky enough to get some early release fabrics to make a quilt with!IMG_1985And here is a look at ‘Forest Frolic’!  Isn’t it fabulous!?IMG_2060There is a great panel that goes with the fabric line.  I love a good panel but I don’t like just putting borders on the panel and calling it a quilt.  This time, I cut up the panel and I added a few other chunks from one of the other fabrics in the line.  These are all different size ‘chunks’ of fabric.  So – what can you do to get these to all ‘fit’ together into a quilt?IMG_2089Log cabins of course!  I used creams on two side and then either brown/yellow, greens, or blue/purples for the other sides.  I added just a few of my cherrywood fabrics and own personal hand dyes to the ‘logs’ but the majority of this piece is all from the Forest Frolic line.IMG_2155-002

And this is what the top of my little quilt turned into!  I think it’s really cute and fun.  Thank you Heidi for letting me play with your fabric and show off just how beautiful it is! 

I just found out that Barb Raisbeck, Quilts by Barb, finished quilting this and it will be on it’s way to me soon for me to bind and finish!  Stay tuned for the ‘finished quilt on a fence’ picture!
