Mule Deer Quilt...

We are in need of a quilt to comfort 

a very dear friend...

We found this Mule Deer panel

and auditioned a few fabrics

from my cupboards in the Thread Shed...

I think this grouping should work nicely

and lots of texture !

I found a block to piece into borders

from this book...

Twin Star Quilt Block....12 inches

My work table is all set up and ready

for stitching, when I can sneak in here

and sew for a few minutes here and there...

First block cut out and on the

design board...

As time allowed...

I stitched a block or two and over a week's

time I completed 6 Twin Star blocks...

At this point...

I chose a pale brown to border the deer panel

and I need to stitch the star borders in place...

I auditioned the wagon wheels

for the final border and...

I really like it !

This photo does not do this quilt top justice...

It is so beautiful in person.

Here we are at the basting table...

Warm & White works for most all my quilts...

I baste with nothing but 505 Spray..

This is now spray basted and

ready to go under the needle.

It's that time of year here at 

The Kessi Ranch

We are gathering up all of the cow and calf pairs

to get them vaccinated, wormed and branded.

The Cowboy is putting fly tags

on Golden Girl.

Yes, she is the mama of Elsa

the frozen calf, who is doing 

wonderfully well!

More To Come !
