Moose on the Loose

If you liked Cheryl Haynes' Folk Art collection, we're pretty sure you'll also fall in love with Moose on the Loose. This collection, in Cheryl's signature folk art style and palette, centers around a lovable moose face and has a north woodsy feel. 

Why a moose?
I have a quilt pattern called Moose on the Loose. When I went to Keepsake Quilting in New Hampshire some years ago, I fell in love with the cutest little stuffed moose for my son. That was when I designed a moose face—every time I look at the moose face, I think of that stuffed toy and my trip up there. The quilt ultimately led to the fabric collection.

Tell us about the main moose in the panel.
The panel features the moose facing forward, just like my original pattern. I had a lot of fun doing that—I love the moose head. I even did a punch needle design with the same pattern.

What’s one of your favorite fabrics in the collection?
I love the allover moose head print that mimics the panel. I think it’s really cute. Overall, I love the darker colors of the entire line. And my husband has already told me that he want moose fabric curtains for his camper.

Tell us about the Moose in the Cabin free quilt pattern.
I like log cabins myself. I think they’re easy to make and I love playing with the colors. You can do so many things with them, putting colors in different positions. I wanted something simple and North Woods-ish. The greens and browns in the line worked really well for this. The moose and the trees are just quick fuse appliques; I think they go well with the north woods theme.

If you love the prints in both Folk Art and Moose on the Loose, great news!
One thing I like is that a lot of my lines go together. The palettes are similar. You can take fabrics from different lines and use them together.
