A View of Deer Valley


Tonight when I got home from work, I found the above 4 bindings made for me by Tanya.  I think this was the hint that I had four more quilts to bind.  I was only successful in completing one quilt tonight, but to me that was a good success.


This is the quilt top that I completed piecing last night.  So it was fun to sit down and start quilting it tonight.  This fabric I got a month ago at my SLMQG meeting  It is a line of Fabric from the Designer Joel Dewberry.  It is from a line called Deer Valley in the palette of tarragon


I liked this fabric from the first time I saw it.  The material was scraps that was given out from another member of the guild.  I was very excited to get it and the first thing I though of when I saw it was that this would look fantastic as another granny square quilt.  I have finished 4 of these now (one of them has not yet been show and will most likely be posted in the next couple days).


Here is a close up of my blocks and the quilting.  You can't tell by the pictures, but the white in the granny squares and the white in the borders are 2 different whites.


The back is one sold piece this was the only large scrap in the group and turned out to make a fantastic back.

Oh, I really like that! Wonderful color palette. I live here in "John Deere" Valley, so I think that's why I'm always drawn to green and yellow in all its variations. ;)

I might actually bind if I had someone making my binding... nah, I'd still farm it out. =)
