    That is beautiful. Would love to try something like that but don't dare. Does the pattern give you stitching instructions or is that all you?

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

    I keep hoping I'll get motivated to give an art quilt a try. This one turned out very nicely. Your right! the quilting really adds to depth to the design.

    Actually, I have never done one before this one. The directions are very simple, if you can applique a circle, you can do this project. It just takes a little longer to cut the individual pieces because a lot of the detail is in the edges.

    Namaste,

    No, Toni Whitney's pattern did not come with stitching instructions. The pattern had a photograph of her finished work to use as a guide if you wanted. And if you could SEE it. LOL. Apparently my bi-focals are not that strong. I just considered what the texture of fur and leaves would look like and put that machine in free motion and I was on my way.

    Namaste,

    This is really cool! I never knew these were out there. I would love to make a deer one for my cousin who just got home from Kuwait. Where did you find the pattern? How did you adhere the fabric?, do you have to finish off the edges of the fabric, or does it fray and look like fur? very cool, thanks for sharing!

    I love your bear and I absolutely love wildlife quilts. I don't do much applique anymore, but think it's beautiful.

    Hi Susan,

    Toni Whitney has at least one deer pattern (or you can purchase the kit with fabric and pattern together), and I think Carl Bender also has a deer pattern in his collection. Some quilting shops have these in stock, but Toni Whitney has a website (www.toniwhitneydesigns.com) that you can purchase from directly.

    The edges are left raw (patterns are called raw edge applique if you are searching for others) and you stitch along the edges to secure the fabric after adhering it with your choice of fusible webbing.

    If you do choose to work on one, please post photos.

    Namaste,
    Koda

    I just tried to bring up the website and it said, This site is under construction. I guess I will wait until tomorrow and see If I can get it. I wonder if it's just my computer.
