That is wonderful that he wanted a quilt based on the barn blocks. I know the bear's paw pattern, but I am not familiar with deer hoof. Sounds like a great combination.
Thanks for you comments.I hadn't heard of Deer Hoof either, couldn't find it on the internet anywhere either, so I tried to recreate the design in dimensions the same as the bear's paw I was doing. See my pinterest page for a picture of the barn and the pattern I created.
I'm still trying to work out the learning curve of using this software, but loving it!
