    Yes so here it is, someone asked what got me started quilting, what do you do for a dh that has everything? you make him a quilt, I was working for Wally World at the time, spent my fair share helping in the fabric dept though that wasn't where I was, I have some good friends there that still work there, and in came this pattern with most of the matching fabrics, so I bit the bullet, I had been eyeing quilting for a few years, wanted to but knew I had the obsesive take it way to far type of personality so kind of left it be, until then. I had used a rotary cutter before for other things, so I knew how to use it, I had been sewing for literally years and years. I watched a show on it once, I had it covered, you will have to tell me if I was right in thinking that.

    If anyone remembers seeing it at wally world, there was supposed to be a greenish duck pattern where the deers are, They never did get it in, so I substituted the embroidered deer in it's place, DH is a hunter but doesn't hunt duck so this worked out better anyway. And where every other moose is there was supposed to be a wolf print of the same color, yet again, they never did get it in. it all worked out in the end anyway,


    and yes, the rest is history,

    That is one of the most creative uses I have seen for one of those panels.
    You have a real feel for this quilting thing, I think.
