Walk quietly in the woods! A mother deer and her fawn are listening for footsteps. This nature block is a fashionable woodland treat to have appliqued on a quilt or pillow. The appliques are easy to sew with large pieces to fit a 20 inch quilt block. The modern, stylized shape of the pattern pieces was inspired by the just released Once Upon A Time fabric line of Yuko Hasegawa for the very popular RJR fabric company. The pattern as sewn in the picture uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt.
Approximate time to complete: less than 2 hours
There are 4 different animal blocks in this project. The entire quilt pattern with all 4 blocks is available and the other 3 patterns can be purchased separately.
This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions. There are full size printable patterns for the block appliques. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me.
I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine.
I have a blog where I share the design process behind the patterns, MarylandQuilter.com. Come by and visit!
