Laura’s Fairy Wildlife Quilt

I love the designs Laura used for her quilt.  They are defnitely fantasy designs with just enough reality 🙂  that’s the way I like my Fantasy!

From Laura:

Howdy,  Just wanted to share a picture of the quilt I’m working on.  Of course the highlights of the quilt are the unique embroidery designs I have been in love with since the first day you posted them for sale.  They are; Fairy Wildlife, parts one, two and three. BFC 1856, 1871, and 1894.  They are wonderful!  I decided to use colored squares to represent land, sea and air animals, green, blue and light blue.  They are all Michael Miller Fairy Frost fabrics, including the copper colored fabricI used to separate the squares.  I actually had all the fabric- yeah for stash building.  I knew someday I would find a use for it.  I still have the backing to put on, { I had to go buy that, bummer}, and the binding to do.  That will be copper, like the trim.  Also I want to give a shout out to whomever it was that thought up “Quick Bias” fusible 1/4 in bias tape. What a time save!  Wish me luck on finishing the quilt.  Thanks a million for the wonderful designs.  My quilt label will give gratitude To BFC Creations for their digitizing of these great designs.

The quilt pattern is my invention.  AS you know, 6 of those 18 designs are horizontal, and 12 are vertical.  That in itself was a challenge. Add to that 10 of one color background, 5 of another and 3 of a third color and it took me a while to figure out placement.  Before I did any embroidery, I cut my fabric pieces larger than I needed, not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with them.  The embroidery designs are 5×7 inches and the fabric pieces were at least 8x 10 inches.  The fabric was too pretty to cut off and throw away, so I came up with the idea to frame the designs with the bias tape and use the whole piece of fabric.  Great idea but hard to execute- lots of measuring and almost exact placement- to make it all line up.  After the fact, I decided it would have been much easier to sew the squares together first, then place the bias tape all at once.  Who knew?  Live and learn.

Sunny’s Feline Zodiac Pillows

My oldest daughter loves kitties (and has two), and she needed new pillows for her couch.  Just finished Feline Stare and Sagittarius Cat pillows with modern backs.  They are 18 inches square, with pintucks and FMQ circles. Everyone at the quilt club loves them!!! =-= Sunny

I think anyone that saw them would love them!  You are so creative Sunny. 🙂



Laura’s Fairy Wildlife

Howdy.  Happy New Year!  Just wanted to show you my first finished project of 2023, using some of your “Fairy Wildlife” designs.  Thanks for these fun critters.  They really make me smile.  Until next time, Laura.

I love these critters too.  I keep hoping the artist does some more 🙂  Suz

Paula’s Hatching Dragon

Look how beautifully this stitched out. Customer will be so pleased.
Now I can’t wait to do the Dragon Dream Catcher! Thank you for the fabulous designs!!  I am in a booth at a renfair and one of the curtains got mauled and has a hole ripped into it. Their booth theme is dragons so I made this to pin behind the hole so it looks like one of the babies is trying to escape. They will be so tickled!!

Barbara’s Wings take off!

My other embroidery machine took a nose dive in the middle of a dream catcher and I had to cover it. I made this patch with the BFC31431 design and saved the jacket. I loved the way it sewed out.

Dragon Wings of Red and Black

My daughter wanted a panel on her jean jacket, too. This one was done on purpose, LOL. I bought and used BFC thread suggested on the color sheet and the wonderful pattern BFC31435. I love BFC thread, as you can see it and the pattern file sew out beautifully.


Steampunk Dragon Wings

I love them both Barbara! Suz
