My husband’s birthday is coming up soon and I wanted to give him something unique.
He really liked the Fancy Forest Wall Hanging I made for my DF (dear friend) so I decided to make a “manly” pillow for him using the fox block from Elizabeth Hartman’s Fancy Forest Pattern
This green batik makes an eye catching fox, don’t you think?
I think the blue print resembles wet fur. I’ll have fun quilting this blue boy…mistakes will be hidden by all this texture!
Doesn’t everyone need an orange fox? Hey, are those mosquitoes flying around his face?
Since my husband wears reading glasses, I just had to add a pair to one fox. I used an iron on fusible web to attach the glasses. I’ll tack these down with a small zig-zag stitch before I do the quilting.
Here’s his pillow ready for quilting! It will be approximately 20 x 20 inches square.
Now there will be 5 foxes in the man cave instead of just one!

The glasses are a perfect touch!
OMG, Yes, yes, your husband is still a stone cold fox, even with the reading glasses! LOL! What a perfect picture!
Haha, he will like the glasses!
The fox with glasses is perfect!
He’s a cutie, isn’t he?
I know this pattern and have seen many versions, but I LOVE your version with the gray background and bright colors – very nice and what a great gift!
Lovely colour balance and a clever design, marvellous.
Oh it’s wonderful!
What husband wouldn’t love a fox quilt and to be called one too 😉🦊
You are so sweet, Abbie!
Shucks thanks Cindy!
I love the glasses x
