What’s On the Design Wall: My Own Sasquatch Sighting

Finally my own “Sasquatch sighting” at my house!

Back in 2018 several of my quilting friends were working on Elizabeth Hartman’s Legendary pattern, which featured a Sasquatch (“Bigfoot”) wandering through the woods.

I did a blog post about those quilts in progress (and completed quilt) in the post Sasquatch Sightings.

Back in 2018 my friend Kathy gave me the leftover flannel scraps and yardage from her Legendary quilt, some of which came from our friend Dana who also made the quilt.


Nearly three years later I am finally making my own Sasquatch quilt and discovered that Kathy gave me enough flannel fabric to make the entire quilt! And I might even have enough to piece a back for the quilt!

First I made the flannel trees:

The tree on the far left is made from leftover piecings from the quilt Kathy made. I am going to put it on the pieced back of the quilt to honor her generosity!

Once I made 14 flannel trees it was time for the challenging part of the quilt – making the pieced Sasquatch which involves over 36+ pieced sections.

I worked on the hands first, which involved the smallest pieces, to get through that first:

It took a couple sessions to get Sasquatch done but finally he was complete!

And now he is on the design wall with the rest of the blocks awaiting for me to cut the sashing that goes between the blocks:

I am going to send this quilt out to be professionally quilted once I finish piecing the front and the back.

It will be awesome to have my own “Sasquatch Sighting”!

  1. I love this!! I am a big (get it) Big Foot fan. Sasquatch, Yeti they all get me pumped. My husband sent me an article “proving” the Yeti did not exist. Talk about fake news!

  2. This is really cool — I like the details on Bigfoot’s hands (and the feet also live up to the Bigfoot title!). I am amazed by the amount of fine piecing that goes into this, and look forward to the next steps!

  3. I am so excited you will have your own Sasquatch quilt. I love all the shared and donated fabrics that came my way from quilting sister Dana in Gig Harbor and now my leftovers go to good use for your very own quilt. Also, I sent you some nice green woolly fabric towards your backing. It is made for the quilt. It is over 2 yards but not as wide as I wish it could be. ๐Ÿ˜‰
