Meet Mo Muskox! Isn’t he a cutie?

Mo is the first winner of the member vote! Members chose him from all of these arctic blocks I designed as part of The 100 Day Project I’m doing over on Instagram.

The Mama and Baby Polar Bear were a VERY close second, so we’ll probably see a pattern for them soon as well. 🙂

Want to see how to assemble Mo?

I had the chance to try out some of my new fabric palettes with my Mo Muskox sample blocks! I talk about them all in more detail at the end of the video, but here are some still photos and handy links.

First, here’s the “realistic” muskox.

The background block is from the Rainbow Sherbet fabric bundle and the muskox is from the Warm Neutrals bundle.

I love this cartoony blue muskox on the more realistic background. The background is the Warm Neutral Batiks bundle and the muskox is from the Rainbow Brights fat quarter bundle.

This is Mo’s fiery redheaded cousin. 🙂 The background block is from the Muted Rainbow bundle and the muskox is from the Batik Rainbow bundle.

And finally. . .

This fun version uses the Batik Rainbow bundle for the background. The muskox uses fabrics from three different bundles: Dots, Gingham Play, and Rainbow Brights.

As soon as I have three blocks in each new colorway combination I’ll be sharing those so you’ll have a better feel for how entire quilts made with these bundles will look. 🙂

And now one extra special bonus! For those who don’t quilt, you can still get a muskox! Mo is now available as a printed panel, perfect for making pillows and other projects.

These are out of stock right now – but there are more on order and should be here soon. 🙂 There’s more info here.

Happy stitching everyone!
