Black Hills Bison

I've completed another Laura Heine pattern.
I love this guy. He reminds me of the buffalo in Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota  where we vacationed when I was a little girl. I remember driving through the park and seeing these magnificent beasts grazing along the roadside.
Do you see the fox hidden among the flowers?
In my minds eye, I see the bison with curly hair, so I quilted curls even though much of a buffalo's hair around the head and and legs is shaggy. 
Many of these fabrics are luscious Art Gallery Fabrics. 
I love them so much I could be a zealous spokeswoman for them !
Look, he took time out from grazing to check out the butterfly that landed on him.
God bless you

WOWZERS. I love it and I'm so glad I bought this kit too. I haven't been able to start the deer yet, but maybe soon.
I have some quilting to do today and the pattern here would be perfect. Let's see if I can copy you some more... Copy Cat 2 ready to begin. This is so beautiful, Vickie. I'm so happy you have shared this.

Never really considered buffaloes to be beautiful but he certainly is. I would love to try something artsy like this. So different and looks like fun.

Quite amazing how you are making these. Friendliest buffalo I've ever seen. :) And very cute. We've been to the Black Hills where they walk right in front of your car.... I never make eye contact because if they are having a bad day I don't want to be the one they take it out on.... they are so big they scare me.

Do you have a name for her?

You sweet Sewing Sister in Christ.
