Isn’t it cute?!
As soon as I saw the free pattern from Bunny Hill Designs I knew I had to make it. I used the same line of Moda fabrics Bunny Hill used, which is 25th & Pine by Moda.
This is a great base pattern – I’d like to try it with a different center motif and other fabrics so I can look at it all year.
I did change up the deer shape a little but used the same style of quilting for the center. In hindsight, I would add the deer AFTER quilting. That was a lot of starting, stopping and tying off.
Going outside my comfort zone I tried something new with quilting around the charms. I’m really proud of myself! Since it’s on the small side I used my regular machine for the quilting.
This was really fun to put together and it’s surprisingly quick. I think it took me 11-12 hours from beginning to end, including the binding. If you’re out of time to make one this year, save it for next!
