Pentagon Week, Day Four

This is one of my absolute FAVORITE quilts! I made it last year and shared it here. I was using the Fox Wood Collection by Becky Olmstead for Windham Fabrics. You can see one of my posts here. I fussy cut several of the forest animals and centered them in another pentagon wreath! Only this time, I used a hexagon for the center and 6 pentagons to surround it (that's because a hexagon has 6 sides!).

Hexagons and Pentagons from Fox Wood

8 blocks and two half blocks make up the center. Those borders were cut from fat quarters. Isn't this fun? I have this pattern in my Etsy store.

Here's one of the blocks up close. Aren't those sassy looking geese?

And one of the half blocks:

Here are some of those animals up close. I made 8 of these for the Marketing Director of Windham because she was SO taken with my quilt that featured them in such a cute way.

Tomorrow I have one last group of pentagon blocks and ideas. Hope you'll come back and see.

    1. I think this Fox Wood collection is my all time favorite, too, Charlene. My grandkids love it when I make little cards for them with the animals.

  3. This is one of my favorites of your quilts. I liked the way you used the Fox Wood fabric, too. The arrangement using half blocks is one of those creative leaps I'd never make if you didn't go there first. =)

    1. I know I replied already via email, but others didn't see that I did. Half-blocks sure fixed the assembly, right? As always, glad to have you stop by!
