I made this quilt a couple months ago for my lovely partner PearliePie in the MAQ4. She had trees/nature and fairy tales as a couple of her themes, so I decided to combine them in a fun forest-y theme quilt with lots of mushrooms, gnomes, and cute forest animals.

Fabrics: Michael Miller Hedgehog line (the hedgehogs (duh), the love birds, and the owls) the mushroom fabric is Alexander Henry I believe, there are also some bits of Momo Wonderland fabric. The woodgrain fabric was from kittykill! The embroidery is from the Gnomes and Fairies Sublime Stitching pattern. I don't do a lot of embroidery but I think I used back stitch and split stitch? I was really happy with how the leaves/vines came out, they had some nice texture.
