Deer Me!

Lots of sewing in my world since my last post. I want to show you the wallhanging that I finished.  It has been on my To-Do List for a long, long time. I first saw this pattern, "Oh Deer" by Laura Heine a few years ago and I was drawn to it even though I am not a big fan of deer on my quilts. Go figure!   I bought an entire bolt of the fabric with the deer.  It is called Doiland Gloss Silver by Katarina Roccella and then I spent a long time gathering just what I wanted to create my collaged deer.    I enjoyed the entire process.  My first time making a collage.  Cutting all the flower motifs from my yardage was fun but I sure made a mess.  

I raw edged appliqued the outer deer shape and the collage in free motion and quilted the background in free motion too.  A fun project!  It hangs in my family room.  
Here's a shot of the back.  

I hope you are having a great summer and also getting time to work on your projects.  😊
