I had so much fun selecting fabrics and layout for the Silent Runners wolf quilt that I had another go at it with some fabric featuring deer. Because of the elusive nature of deer I wanted them to blend into their background more so selected fabrics that were closer in tone to one another and to the colors in the feature fabric. The deer are actually much smaller than the wolves so they blen in better by scale also.
I used the same layout for the quilt as for the wolves and did the same quilting - large X through every 9-patch and free-motion outline on all the deer. I made the 9-patch blocks with four fabrics rather than just three but mixed both oranges with both gray/green so they would create more of a blend instead of patches of color.
The back of the quilt is cammoflage fabric which is in keeping with the hunting/nature theme.
This lap quilt will go to the Passages program at the local hospital.
