In between shoveling, shoveling and more shoveling (the snow is really beautiful!) I’ve been working on a pieced blanket. This is a custom order through my Etsy shop. The star of this blanket is the fabric, one fabric in particular, American Folk and Fabric, The French Fox. This is a reproduction of an antique French children’s fabric and sadly American Folk and Fabric has discontinued it. I ordered as much as I could when I found out to my horror that it would no longer be around! For years I have loved this fabric and haven’t found another to replace it. Just look at the pictures of the characters, the French fox, the hen and the rest, just fabulous! And not your usual syrupy sweet children’s print, there’s something way more complex going on, why is the fox being dragged away, what could he have done ;)
The blanket is made up of 8″ alternating squares, I’ve also used a pale pink and deep magenta both Kona cottons. I’ll be backing in a natural color organic flannel and the whole blanket will be tied (more on that later if you’re not sure what that is).
