Foxglove Fabric Showcase

Foxglove Fabric Showcase
June 9, 2016 nicole

Hi friends,

I have been an Aneela Hoey fan from the very start of my sewing days – Little Apples, Cherry Christmas, A Walk in the Woods, Sherbet Pips… I mean, I would stalk the online fabric stores just waiting for a new line to come out! You can imagine how excited I was when I finally had the chance to meet Aneela in person at last fall’s quilt market – I was pretty pumped to see this new line.

After finally getting my hands on Foxglove I knew exactly what I wanted to do with those little foxes – Hexies!

I decided to use two of the colorways – the pink coral shade (that is insanely perfect) along with the navy to create a duo of hexie pillows. There are two more in the works, a minty green version and a fun all orange version that I just need to quilt up.

I have been following along with Aneela’s daily posts about her line, what inspired her and her initial drawings. It truly is fascinating watching the fabric design process.

The scale of the prints is the perfect size for 1″ hexagons, and also for most quilt blocks. I love how the little foxes are jumping around in different poses too – so cute!

The pillows are actually a new pattern I just released – you can find more about the Hexie pillow that includes bonus Hexie Flower Pillow Layout!

One of my favorite prints in the line is the coral pink with darker pink flowers, the two shades are just perfection.

    I love your pillows and the technique is one I’ve admired before. How you get everything so perfectly placed to allow great quilting is a puzzle. The fabrics look fantastic.
