Deer Butterfly Mini Quilt

I love quilting and embroidery, so when I saw this gorgeous deer butterfly print by Michael Miller, I knew i had to make quilts and embroidery on it.deerbutterfly10

You don’t have to start with a blank canvas or even use iron on embroidery patterns to practice stitching. Pull interesting fabric from you stash and practice your embroidery.


I wanted to make a min wall quilt with scraps from the quilt so I just cut out some squares and framed the deer. Added cotton batting to the back and started my random design.


I started with simple lazy daisies, added straight stitch and french knots, then I went back and filled with lighter and darker colors in a straight stitch and outlines. I try to use 1, 2 and 3 strands of floss for texture while I stitch. It’s all unplanned. Just an exercise in stitching free style with no design.


Soon this handsome deer had a floral wreath around his neck and a crown of flowers. It’s very spring and very me!  Finished size is approximately 12.5 x 9 inches





Unicorn Wall Quilt

Loving how this mini unicorn quilt turned out. I used this gorgeous print form “The Lovely Hunt” fabric line by Lizzy House.


Fell in love with it immediately. Tiny rabbits and pheasants with mushrooms and flowers. Can’t get any better then that.


I also used Lizzy’s Mini Pearl Bracelets as well, it seems to go with everything. The quilt measures 19.5 x 19.5 and is machine quilted and hand bound.  This mini wall quilt is for sale and available for purchase from my Etsy Shop.
