Fancy Forest

This is Reneta's version of Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Forest quilt.  This quilt is a bit of a labour of love.  It has A LOT of pieces!  2016 is the year Reneta committed to sewing her stash, and she was able to make almost this entire quilt less the background and the backing!

I recently quilted Reneta's Fancy Fox quilt with wood grain, and Reneta requested the same treatment on this one as they will be living in the same room.  We decided that the blue Stonehenge backing was a nice compliment.

I love how the woodgrain quilting adds texture without taking away from all of the work that went into piecing the top. There is so much to look at.


  1. This is just the cutest quilt - great job!

  2. Reneta's quilts make my heart sing and this one is no exception. Love that woodgrain quilting. Very versatile. Great job Reneta and Lori.

  3. What a fantastic quilt! Love the colors and the woodgrain quilting.

  4. magnifique , inspirant ... et rassurant ; je vais oser me lancer pour la taille baby sans me prendre le chou pour les séries de couleurs !
