Forest Friends – Back Country Adventure

Hi friends! It is Jennifer Long from Bee Sew Inspired, back to introduce you to my newest fabric collection with Riley Blake Designs and share all the details and project about Forest Friends – Back Country Adventure Fabric! Throughout the next few months, I will be sharing with you (3) FREE Sew-Alongs / Quilt-Alongs that support this collection. I can’t wait for us to get started!

Come with me on this Back Country Adventure, and join the Woodland and Arctic Fox families as they explore together on an epic and imaginative adventure!

Here are a taste of some of the prints in this collection! There are (4) colorways! Make sure to check out the Forest Friends Storyboard to see all the SKUs and projects inside this fabric collection HERE!

Are you ready for an Adventure?

The Foxes go on an adventure of make-believe. They camp, they hike, they make some smores. The get dressed in their cozy, knitted sweater vests, and wrap themselves with scarves.

They enjoy the heat of the glowing campfire and sleep under the stars. On their family hike, they hear the crunch of the leaves under their feet, and take in the fresh air and changing colors of the Autumn woods.

Come join us as we take an imaginative adventure with the Fox Family through the back-country woods!
