I took a walk in the forest, and see what I bumped into: A herd of moose hiding among the trees!
The moose pulled further in the forest and tried to get away from me.
Maybe they are a little bit more comfortable hanging in the tree?
Relaxing on the sofa must be the best place!
They wanted to go out again, and the porch floor seemed to be a good location.
Moose on the Loose
48" x 60"
Design by Cheryl Haynes for Benartex
Pieced and quilted by me
All the fabrics used are from my stash. The quilt is a combination of pieced log cabin blocks and raw edge appliqué. The quilting consists of straight line with the walking foot (Janome) and free motion quilting on my 50 year old Pfaff.
The backing is a flannel in fall colors, perfect for camouflage during the hunting season!
Here is a detail picture taken during the quilting process. The brown fabric is perfect for moose skin, and the scrappy tree adds to the masculinity of the quilt.
I finished the quilt with a coffee brown binding, and added a hanging sleeve so the recipient can choose whether he wants to hang it on the wall or snuggle under it in his chair.
