Welcome to the Wild Woods by Windham Fabrics
|Wild Woods by Daphne B for Windham Fabrics|
|Four of the six woodland creatures|
I cut four 2-1/2" strips each from 3 companion fabrics:
|2-1/2" strips shown with my leftover vertical rows of images|
|39" x 39" Child's quilt top, waiting for machine quilting|
|Quilted and DONE! In my charity quilts bundle.|
I have a "go to" place mat pattern for my granddaughter. I made one for her and one for another little 2 year old guest who came for Thanksgiving. Don't you love that fox fabric!?
|Placemat for Eva (granddaughter)|
|Placemat for Aitana (friend's daughter)|
Raw edge appliqued the patches; layered with batting and backing and stitched around patches. The binding is a fun print that reminds me of a stripe.

|Fusible Timtex (heavy interfacing) on wrong side of each panel|
|6 animal cards|
And we need a card holder, right? And I had two extra animal panels that I turned into pockets. Wait! Why is the owl upside down? Is he hanging on a tree? Stay with me here!
|Animal pockets with 6 cards|
Added binding from yet another of the fabrics. I had some leftover two-sided quilted cream fabric and this worked perfectly for my animal pocket envelope.
|Fox pocket on the front|
The owl pocket had to be sewn on so he was oriented right side up on the back.

And I added two pieces of sew-in velcro to keep the pocket closed and the animals safe!
