I should not be starting anything new - but I did and I finished it too. I wanted to make a Christmas Cushion! I love Deer so much. They are such elegant animals. I thought two on a cushion would look good.
I used Heat n Bond underneath the deer and machine blanket stitched them down to the background fabric. I then made my quilt sandwich and shadow quilted around the deer. My pillow form is 20". I cut the background fabric to 19 inches when quilted. Once I bind around the edges the measurement is 18 inches finished. I love a plump well stuffed pillow. This works really well.
We had a really spectacular sunset on Saturday night. I could not resist snapping a few pictures.
