The two bear embroidery projects were stitched and then sewn into pillows. I purchase one of the designs from the Anita Goodesigns "Lodge" collection. The other was found on an embroidery design website where I am a subscriber.
The bear, deer, and hunting designs were stitched out for my dear husband.....maybe if he has these close to his heart he'll leave the real ones alone!!!
The images above are from my first quilting project. I decided the long straight strips would be easiest to practice on. I bought the fabric in a kit from my favorite sewing machine store: Gina's Bernina in Knoxville.
I found this wonderful wildlife panel (above) on Ebay. I add some nature themed border material that I purchased at Katie's Fabrics in Englewood. I actually quilted this top to a nice and warm fleece throw.
This deer panel was easy to quilt as the fabric already had that "pieced" look. As soon as I got this one finished my husband staked his claim!!
