The above fabric is called "Woodland Friends" by Ellen Crimi-Trent for Clothworks and honestly, how does one get ideas that cute?!
You might remember my sad story in November of poor zipper planning and the "unneeded" fabric buy. Well that Hedgehog fabric was that unplanned buy. It completely changed a quilt plan on me. I had to have it.
The pattern is "Bright Garden" from Sweet and Simple Baby Quilts by Mary Hickey. Once I had cut and sewn all the pieces and was doing some layout I did agonize a bit about the striping and the direction of the hedgehogs but the more I looked at it the more I liked it and I was able to move some blocks around to get a better balance. I could have gotten around the different direction stripping by creating extra separate triangles rather than using opposite halves of a cut square.
