Deer Quilt 1

Deer Quilt 2

When I heard that a friend in Florida had a new granddaughter, I instantly wanted to make her this little deer quilt.  Years ago, we both blogged and had names we used online for our kids.  I had Tall One and Little One (which is how we assumed the dogs told the kids apart) and my friend had Mini Me and Lumberjack.  Well, time flies and children grow.  Lumberjack is a Daddy, and a deer quilt seems like a perfect fit for a Lumberjack’s beautiful daughter.

I’m really pleased with that bright pink binding against the blue, and I’m so in love with the deer that I may need to make myself one to keep.  The pattern is free from the hugely talented Luke Haynes, with a PDF pattern and instructions at We All Sew.  While it looks complicated, the steps are broken down nicely and it’s all easy to follow.  It seems pretty forgiving of small mistakes, too.  If you like the quilt and you sew at all, give it a try.

And now, back to sewing …

WIP: Deer Baby Quilt

Beginning

Deer Quilt in Progress

Deer Quilt, Medium Tone Added, Not Yet Sewn

My current work in progress is a sweet little deer baby quilt.  I’ll post more about it when it’s finished, but I thought you might like a peek of how it looks right now.  In the last photo, the medium tone fabric isn’t yet sewn down, it’s just laying on the white.  (Oh, what a challenge that is going to be!)  There will be one more layer of darker fabric to add a little more detail and dimension.
