Fox Field Mystery Quilt – Complete!

Remember this quilt from a few months ago?  Its Tula Pink’s fox field mystery quilt through Craftsy. I wrote here about how much I adored the prints but felt frustration with the pattern.  I’m such a perfectionist and I wanted lots of pretty points!

After piecing the top, I put it away for a while.  When my sister said that it was one of her favorites, I put aside my frustrations and decided to quilt it up for her in time for Christmas.

I must admit that I like it much better now that it’s so crinkly and snuggly!

  I ordered my favorite large-scale pink fabric from the line for the backing.   Somehow I managed to forget to take a picture of it before I gave the quilt away.  Oops!   I also found a great pink variegated thread from Aurifil that I used to stipple the quilt.so the thread blended in nicely with the front and back.

There were a few solids left in my jelly roll that I decided to use for binding.  I love the scrappy look!

My sister and brother-in-law, Sam and Ben, received the quilt Christmas morning. Here they are being goofy!

Of course, we had to get another, more reasonable shot, even if it’s among our mess of Christmas morning gift opening! Fox Field Mystery Quilt

Merry Christmas, Sam and Ben!

  • Jessica

    I love love love this one!

  • I’m so glad you finished it off, it looks like a really well received gift. 🙂

  • How beautiful! Isn’t it amazing how quilting and washing a quilt gives it life in a way a flimsy top just can’t? Love the variety of prints you used, has a very controlled scrappy look to it.

  • Krista

    Wow, that looks great! I can understand any frustrations with patterns you have, it’s happened to me too.

  • Ohhhh, it’s divine!!

  • Liz

    I think it looks great, and is clearly well received! I agree about the points, but I think that since they’re on the edge anyway it’s far less noticeable to anyone (except you as the maker, of course!)

  • I always seem to love a quilt so much more after it’s washed and dried too. The quilt looks great and your sister seems to really like it, so I think you can count this as a super success!! 🙂

  • Oh its beautiful, love the colours and the quilting looks great!

  • Congrats on the Quilt Story feature hon! http://quiltstory.blogspot.com/

  • Where can I get the pattern and fabric? I love this

  • Looks great! I love giving quilts as gifts and seeing the person’s reaction when they unfold it for the first time. 🙂 I still haven’t worked up the courage to attempt free motion quilting, so I give you major kudos for doing an entire quilt! Haha. 🙂

    Amazing!!! Beautiful!! I love this so much.

    Isn’t it funny how you can look at a quilt top and think oh that’s pretty, and then you see it all quilted and it takes your breath for a moment and you think wow it’s gorgeous! So much better! I feel that way about a lot of my quilts too.

    I think this is fabulous! The fabric choices are great.
