This was my frist quilt, And like every quilt I ever met, it has a story. We were in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee about 8 years ago and stopped by a side-of-the-road quilt shop to look at the great quilts that were hanging outside. This lady had a quilt made from square pillow tops with deers on it. My DH remarked, " I don't know why you couldn't make one like this." This was in May. And with our anniversary coming up in September I made this one for him.
Here is a closeup of the top:
