UFO #4 Nearly Done-Design Wall

Well, all I have left to do is the binding. I want to thank Judy again for suggesting the UFO challenge. I got it out yesterday and started quilting it. It's very simple with a fleece backing. I'm so glad there is one more out of the closet.

For the binding I think I'll either find the multi-colored batik I used for the small north wind blocks and the colored border, or I'll just drag out some black. Either way, it should be done in another couple of days. YIPPEE!

I walked out of the house to hang this on the line so I could get some true color pictures  and there were 8 deer just hanging out. I think the neighbor is still feeding them, because they didn't take off when I came out. They stopped and looked at me, but then went back to grazing.

I wish he would stop. It's not good that they are so acclimated to humans. We had a buck in the backyard last summer who decided he liked our corner, and didn't want to leave. I am afraid that at some point we'll go out and one will decide we've invaded his territory and decide to take action.

Check out Judy's blog to see what other people have on their design wall.

That quilt is SO gorgeous, I just love it! That's a lot of deer in your backyard - I can't believe they're so fearless.

I already said I love the quilt, but I also love the photo of it, with the trees and dusting of snow - what an idyllic place you call home!

And I agree with you about feeding wildlife; it's just not a good idea.

Sue Daurio said...

your quilt is amazing!! maybe that's why the deer are coming by, to check out your beautiful works of art! But I do agree with the feeding, they will become dependent on it and that's not good. Nice job on the finish.

Lovely quilt and the batik binding should look great. We have deer up here too but they banned feeding them due to wasting disease and TB. I agree they become quite tame and then BAM come hunting season.

Wow, love your UFO #4, you are definitely on the ball about getting this one done. I need to at least pull mine out and see if I have any fabric for borders.

Oh come on Mary...it's only the beginning of the month and you've already almost finished your April UFO!?!? I haven't finished March's yet! You put us to shame! LOL
It's very pretty!

I love black and brights combinations. Your quilt is stunning.

Alycia said...

stunning!

Karen said...

The colors glow on your quilt!

Gari said...

Your quilt is just beautiful. We get 2-3 deer in our yard occasionally but they are just passing through, we don't feed them.

Bonnie said...

Beautiful quilt and even better because it is almost done! I like to look at deer but not drive around deer, if you know what I mean. And, nope, should not be feeding these guys. There is plenty of food for them in the forest.

Diana said...

I really love your quilt. It is very visually stimulating. Nice job!

I love the bright colors of your quilt, and the pieceing looks awesome!

Your quilt is stunning! We have deer too, which we put out corn for, but they are not so acclimated to us that they will stick around if we are out and about. Of course, we have a hunting club that borders the property we're on, so perhaps that makes a difference! :)

I agree about the UFO Challenge...it feels so good to be motivated to finish these quilts! The picture of your visitors is so beautiful but I completely understand your frustration with the neighbor. I'd be furious because deer love to eat so many landscape plants! I get moose and nobody feeds them! They are like an 800 pound gorilla in the room...they do whatever they want.

Beautiful! Love the colors! Isn't the UFO challenge perfect as motivator?

Julie Kaye from KS said...

Love your brightly color quilt. Great picture of the deer, but I do understand your dilemma.

Amy said...

This is a beautiful quilt! It really pops. Your backyard has a fabulous view.

Melinda said...

The colors on your quilt are wonderful. I also enjoyed your artistic photography. I can't believe you have already finished this month's UFO.

Kate said...

Beautiful quilt! Love all the bright colors.

Becky said...

This is so beautiful, bright and wonderful. I love how you changed the medallion square into a rectangle. The blocks look just perfect for it. I must remember this setting!

Perry said...

Beautiful quilt! I don't blame you for worrying about the deer and I agree about feeding them. Maybe he intends to "hunt" them?

Donna~~ said...

Your quilt is lovely! Congrats on your progress! While fun to watch, having such big fearless deer in my yard would worry me too!

Kathy T. said...

That quilt is stunning - I'll bet you love to keep looking at it!

queenpeach20 said...

What an absolutely beautiful quilt. I am jealous. We have those deer in my backyard too!!! It must go along with quilting.

JCnNC said...

Wonderful and beautiful UFO finish. I also am really thankful for Judy L's challenge. Judy C

Katie said...

Beautiful quilt! Fantastic finish! And the stater where I live, it's not permitted to feed (bait) deer. Not that it stops anyone who is really determined...

Gail said...

Black and brights always please me, this is fabulous, great job!
