This St. Bernard is a commissioned piece I just finished from a pattern I designed.
My oldest granddaughter drew this deer for me. The horns are just small bits and pieces of fabric that are left over from cutting out flowers.
It's for sale.
Another deer....do you see the tiger hiding in there some where?
A lady at bible study got that batik fabric at a gift exchange we do each month for birthday celebrations. She's not a quilter, so I told her that if she would give me the fat quarter I would make something and bring it back to her......she was thrilled with the cross.
This picture was taken before the binding was sewn down.
I gave it to my brother for his 70th birthday.
The story behind the flying pig is: when he was a teenager our pigs got out and went to the neighbors house several miles away. Dad told him to go get them and the neighbor wasn't very nice about it. My brother being a little upset was driving pretty fast on the dirt road when the old homemade trailer came off the ball and the nose of it drove down in the gravel catapulting the pigs into the air. My brother said he looked up and pigs were flying over the cab of the pickup ! They landed in the ditch and were all knocked out. Harlan said he thought "boy am I in trouble all the pigs look dead"! He said here in a minute he could hear grunting.....they all jumped up and ran straight home!
I love that story....when he tells it I laugh so hard I can't breathe !
So I always give him some sort of flying pig for special occasions.
And a traditional quilt finish, measuring 98" x 98" generous queen size.
This one is for sale too.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Thanksgiving, God bless you.
