Q53 – Quilt – Deer Lake


Our next quilt, Deer Lake, has been completed and will soon find its way to its new home in Highland Grove, Ontario.

Deer Lake is one of our original designs in which we used Deb Strain’s Moda fabric line titled Cherish Nature. Our design is a variation of a quilt block template called Diamond in the Square.

Deer Lake has been made to be a wall-hanging. Its dimensions are: Width – 34” (86.4 cms) and Length – 76” (193 cms). The determination of the organic colors and blending of the shades were made after a series of interviews. In keeping with the requestor’s like for our quilt Harlequin, (see Q9) and the home and neighboring environment, the design was completed keeping in mind its final location purported to be a pine wall in the house.

Here are some close-ups.

And now we are working on a new design – Continuation, which will eventually be headed for Ashville, North Carolina. Two other designs are in the draft stage; a color variation on Rainbow Glass and an abstract modeling of a skyscraper.

We have a number of tops completed and in line to be quilted. These include: Rainbow Glass; Tango 3; Kanzashi; PJ & Packages; Christmas Morning I; Christmas Morning II; and Isle of The Misfit Toys.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual grid presentation at the bottom of the Blog page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

Please let me know if anything on the Blog site does not properly work, or do what it says it is supposed to do. I’m always striving to make sure an ease of use.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of the available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please get in touch with me at our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

Great title. It definitely evokes the feeling of a mountain lake view. Peaceful and Beautiful.

It certainly was fun working on this one especially since the actual Deer Lake is 1,800 miles away.
