Description

When I saw +Skynme 's Contempo Fox I fell in love with that block!  I went and bought the pattern (Elizabeth Hartman at OhFransson) and went to work.  I have the foxy part of the quilt pieced, but have not added borders or back.  I have a sly foxy idea for the back which I will share when it is done.  This is for a boy baby expected by some young in-laws in September, but they are closely guarding the name, hence "Baby X".  This is a fun block to put together, but the cutting takes awhile.  I didn't use baby fabrics...I know the expectant parents pretty well, and I think they'll like the more modern look.  

UPDATE PROJECT COMPLETED!  I finished this last night.  I got so inspired I just stayed on it and now it is done!  I was proceeding in an extempore fashion from my stash, and found when I got the top pieced that I didn't have enough of the light green background for a whole top, so I added some length and width with the dark blue print (which I love) and put a nice little white chicken in the intersection.  That chicken will always be safe from the foxes, because she is on the other side, right?  I am planning to give this to the mother to be, my dear son-in-law's sister, along with a copy of The Tomten and the Fox, by Astrid Lindgren, one of my kids' favorite bedtime stories.
