    Need suggestions for "woodsy" quilt!

    Hi all,
    My sister and brother in law told me they would love a quilt for Christmas that has bears, moose, pine trees, fish, etc on it. I bought a pattern but it is far too hard for me, as it has flying geese in all different directions, very confusing. I can use the animal and tree outlines in the pattern, I know how to use fusible web, and can even handle sewing around the appliques by machine, but I am still a beginner in most ways.

    Would any of you ladies, or gents, have a suggestion for a pattern I could find online? My sister also loves red, and wants some red in this, and I am not sure how to work red in with the greens and other colors of this quilt.

    Any suggestions would be great!! Thanks,
    Nancy

    How about just finding fabrics that have the wanted elements - and just do something easy with them - such as cutting large pieces of the focus fabrics and put sashing between them with a border or two?

    I did a quillow for my dad that the center was a beach towel with a fox in the woods so I did a four patch square around the towel and then added a dark green sashing, a black sashing and then a beige binding that matched the backing fabric. Keep it simple and let the animals be the focal point.

    get the animal fabric and then do an attic windows. I am just finishing up one with this pattern. I used Backyard Bandits fabric. It is turning out really cute and is fairly simple.
