Two Deer (or Too Dear!)
54" x 65"
I am inspired by all the deer in my neighborhood, but especially in the spring when the fawns are born. I enjoyed building on the theme of "you are what you eat", from my first deer quilt, Urban Deer. The mother deer eats flowers, so her body is made from flowers. The baby deer first nurses, so her body is made of white circles (milk), and symbolically, the multicolored flower centers from her mother.
Mistyfuse, then individually hand cut, and fused together to make the main body of the doe.
Superior Threads, and then spent an entire summer hand quilting the white background. I love the texture of this quilt so much. The hand quilting added a very nice softness for the background.
Cheers and happy quilting!
