Description

I made this whole thing up for my little sister's 16th birthday.  The images were printed off the computer and appliqued onto the fabric.  My sister is the kind of girl who loves anything John Deer/camo/country/farm animal related.  So, the backing will be camo, the outside borders will be denim and different colors of the "bandana" fabric (to give it a brighter, fresh spin on it).  A lot of improvisation has gone into this project....and I'll probably end up changing something at the last minute.  :smile:  It's always fun and rewarding when something that you've designed yourself comes out satisfactory.  Let me know what y'all think! 

*UPDATE*  wall quilt is finally done, and just in time too for my little sister's birthday.  At first, I wanted to go with a plaid or checkered binding, but felt like camo was better suited for this since my sister loves camo so much.  It's different and a little unexpected which made it the obvious choice.  :)  

I couldn't be more proud of it and more excited to see my sister's face when she sees it.  I did a "quilt photoshoot" and posted pics of the finished product.  When my mom and two other little sisters saw it, they all asked me to make something for them.  LOL.  challenge accepted!

I am definitely not a John Deer/camo/country/farm animal kind of girl, but this is SO CUTE! I love this! The appliques are adorable and the fabrics are so fun together! I can't wait to see it when it is all done!
