Modified ‘Doe a Deer’

Baby Quilts/ Fat Quarter Quilts/ Uncategorized

Happy first Sunday of the 2016 NFL Season!  While many of us enjoy watching football with our friends, hubs, etc. sometimes it is nice to retreat to the studio on Sunday for some ‘me’ time.  Today I am working on finishing up my next blog post, but in the meantime here is one I’ve been meaning to share with y’all for some time.

The nursery colors are teal and coral which is a pretty tough combination I discovered, but luckily Woodland Springs by Designs by Dani for Riley Blake came through and worked perfectly.

It also needed to be counter height or slightly higher since I’m standing 90% of the time I’m ironing.  It also had to have storage space since that was the point of the entire thing and, of course, look good.
