In summer 2016 the Vancouver MQG had a showcase of modern quilts. I was keen to go so I hopped on the ferry and went. I’ve been to a few of their meetings and the social media world is small so I kinda-sorta know some of their members.
While I was chatting with Janet (blog and IG) and Paula about the show I looked up and saw a fancy fox peeking out between the quilts. I snapped a pic and had an absolute blast recreating the picture as my own quilt.
I made up a little story about this handsome fox:
Fancy Fox adjusted his glasses again. He was nervous about leaving the forest for the quilt show but today, today he was hoping to meet a fancy lady fox.
Here is the picture I took.

“Improv Under the Influence” technique by Krista Hennebury
Each of the little quilts had binding and was quilted like the original quilt; except for the aqua one on the left as I didn’t want to do such dense spirals so close to the edge. The entire quilt top was made from my scraps and the back came from stash.
