    My wildlife quilt

    Hopefully I can add a picture of a wildlife quilt I made for my brother. He is an avid hunter and I have wanted to make this for him for years. I picked up the wildlife panels from Amish country then didn't know what to do with them. I asked for help from my LQS and she sat down with me and we drew up the pattern. I started by making all the wildlife blocks the same size by adding the black around them. After that, it was easy. Hope you like it.

    Really like it a lot. I love how you incorporated all those "animal blocks", bear's paw & flying geese!
