It’s that time of year again….. The Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy of Amy’s creative Side :)
Here’s my entry….
A deer quilt for a dear friend…
I finished this quilt around this time last year as a gift for our friend Lou. Of course I wanted to make it out of a htf fabric and the thrill of the hunt just added to the fun of making this quilt ;)
I was inspired by the design of this quilt that Jacquie of Tallgrass Prairie Studio made with the help of some bees. I contacted Jacquie and I asked her if she minded if I drew inspiration from it to create something similar for my friends quilt and she didn’t mind at all.
I really enjoyed making this one and though I drew out a rough plan it pretty much evolved as it went along.
For the straight line quilting, masking tape really came into it’s own!
Here’s a peek of the deer quilt in it’s ‘new’ home….lovin’ the sylin’ with the West German pottery vases…
