    "Eagle Eye View", quilt and pillow

    I made and am donating this quilt and pillow to the local organization of Friends of NRA for their banquet next week. Some pics are from panels; the bears and eagles in 2nd & 3rd row are fussy cut from allover print fabrics. I framed each block with black, laid them out on the floor and filled in the spaces. The backing is an allover deer print (smaller blocks with black framing). It was machine quilted by a local gal. Hope it goes over good.

    It is stunning! It is a wonderful use of large prints. I am sure it will be popular at the event!

    Just had to ad lib to this...my daughter showed the quilt pic she had on her phone, to a couple. The gent said, "Why, that is a MAN quilt. I thought quilters made sissy quilts!" It made me laugh. My LA quilter stitched around each of the larger animals and in person, it appears sorta 3D.

    That is the prettiest quilt I have seen like this. I think it should go over and have a great response.
