Peep Culture Quilt, Part 2


Remember the Peep Culture quilt I made a while back using Lynn's Hexagon Park pattern? Well, I fibbed a little about who it was for. I wanted to blog about the quilt because I was so excited about it, but since the intended recipient (my friend Heather) reads my blog, I was worried she'd figure out it was for her. So I might have made up the bit about it being for an out-of-town baby shower back in August.

Peep Culture Quilt

Her baby shower was this past Saturday, and because I enjoy stressing myself out, I decided the night before the shower that I needed to make another gift, since I wanted to give her something she hadn't seen before. Hence the matching Fox pillow. Isn't he cute? He reminds me of Coraline with his blue fur and button eyes :)



I used 1001 Peeps for Mr. Fox, Riley Blake Cheery Circles for the sashing, and more of the DS Picnic & Fairground plaids for the back. The paper-pieced fox pattern was purchased from Artisania.

Pardon my blurry photo of the back...I forgot to take pictures and ended up snapping these right before I walked into the baby shower. I literally got out of my car, yanked this out of the gift bag, and snapped photos in my trunk (did I mention it was also raining and I had to use the hood of the trunk for cover?).

Can't ever do things the easy way in my household *wink*

perfect little set! So worth a fib!

I love everything about this post. The quilt is to die for as is the adorable fox. But I especially love that you pulled the gift out of the bag to take photos in your trunk in the rain. Aahh! I love it!

My sister saw a picture of Lynne's quilt and wanted a baby version. This is perfect. I'm coming back to you for dimensions. :)

Such a happy pair of gifts! I love the little pillow, and I bet your friend was ecstatic!!

how is it possible that you own so many fabrics I don't?! I miss our Stash swaps!! You make me want to buy every Lizzy House fabric out there. I only have the pearl bracelets out of all of these!

Amazing gifts for your lucky friend!!! Love the little foxy.

Fun! Gift-related subterfuge is the best kind of subterfuge in my opinion.

Oh my goodness! Almost makes me want to have another baby if you would make me one, too!

i bet she cried when you gave it to her she was so happy!

I love love love this little fox! I went to her etsy site and found the most adorable little gnome that I might have to make for my hubby for Christmas. I haven't made any pillow covers before. Is there a tutorial that you have used that works well? Thanks!

I certainly could have cried when I opened this! Truly one of the most amazing gifts I have ever gotten... the time and thought put in to these beautiful works of art is INCREDIBLE! You are SO SO SO awesome in every way! So very lucky! I need to send you a thank you note but it needs to be more like a thank you BOX so I am taking my time with it :) Baby boy will be here any day now!
