Another Finished Panel and Drawing Deer...

 I finished the second panel for my "Over The River" quilt yesterday.
I'm surprised at how quickly this panel progressed, and I even
added a few personal touches to this one. I think they'll make you smile.
 This is the section of the panel that I personalized. I know you'll 
see my touches right away, but I'll point them out anyway. The
first one is on the near right side...the initials carved into the tree.
"S.L. + D.L."
Handsome and me, of course!
 The other was the weather vane. Handsome said it looks a little like a
pig, but you know what it's supposed to be, right? It's a corgi, of course!

 According to the original pattern, the third panel is supposed to be 
stitched wording (after the title of the quilt pattern), but you know I
just had to do something different that would reflect my own work.
(I have a tendency to do this on all my work, even if it's just a touch.)

 I've already told you that I'm designing this panel to be appliqued',
and decided to show you just a little bit before I start working in fabric.
You know that I'm using elements that are meaningful to me...
acorns, oak leaves and wildlife (not too much, mind you).

I can't believe it's the weekend again already.
Coffee with my girlfriends and then back to the studio to start this layout.
Also, thanks to Carolyn, Ruth and Danice for their help yesterday.
Carolyn gave me the pattern information; Ruth provided a link to order;
and Danice shared a Graphics Fairy post about finding originals for pins.
I knew I could count on my blog friends to help me out!
Just go back to yesterday's post and see the updates I added.
Happy Saturday, my friends!

Good Morning Donna, The quilt in the previous post was so pretty and I can spend to much time looking at all the wonderful things. I like your panel, but I didn't think your weather vane looked like a pig. Have a wonderful day and if you have sunshine send some my way. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

How very clever of you to personalize your quilt panel and make it a true family heirloom. I adore your additions. If the weather vane were a pig it would have wings. :o)
Wonderful weekend dear...
