Antler Dance is made using my Cut and Shuffle method (this quilt is not in the book). Although it looks complex, it's actually just one very easy block in a light version and a dark version. Cut and Shuffle Quilts all start with a simple framed square, which is then sliced and diced. The parts are rearranged to make a nine-patch block. Lots of configurations are possible, and I particularly like the tessellated effect here. Antler Dance was completed in February 2016.
Antler Dance, 72" x 72"
Starting in the center, I spiral quilted it using the walking foot, which gives it a bull's eye effect. Antler Dance will be gifted at Christmas to a family where the dad is an avid bow hunter. Very fitting, don't you think?!
