Cute Animal Applique

Wow- I can't believe it has been more than a month since I have shared quilts on this blog.  I have been been so have a number of wonderful things to share over the coming days to get caught up!  First up is the adorable animal applique quilt made by Heather.

Heather adapted the "Oh Deer" pattern from the Animal Parade 2 book by Cheri Leffler.  Heather used animals from other patterns in the book and adapted the layout to meet her needs.  Heather requested custom quilting from me as she wanted it to be extra special for her grandson's first birthday.

I did a lot of ruler work to highlight Heather's beautiful piecing and applique.  The outer border was the perfect size for the curved echo order treatment that I haven't had the opportunity to quilt in awhile.

The lovely aqua Fireside backing is very cuddly and shows off the quilting so nicely.



  1. This reminds me of the old brass bed fittings, and I can imagine a little person looking at those animals in wonder.Beautiful, and will be a treasure way beyond that birthday date.

  2. What a beautiful quilt! The animals are adorable and your quilting really compliments it.
