Machine Quilting: Embroidered Deer

Mary made this little wall hanging for her new grandson before his arrival and brought it to me to finish it up.
 Mary did an amazing job with the embroidery and wanted some finishing touches, but didn't want to embroider everything in and make the quilt too overwhelming visually.
 Trying to keep it simple yet functional, I quilted in these fun curls around the center design. It's a great design that works well in and out of little areas you may find in applique or embroidered works.
 Mary was originally thinking about embroidering in some leaves around the text in the quilt, but we chatted about it and I could quilt the leaves for her which serves as both functionality to stitch the quilt together, but also give her the design she wanted in a more subtle appearance. The same curls from the center were then quilted in the corners and outer edges of the quilt.
And this deer was too amazing. I love the colors and the details. Mary did an amazing job and I was happy to finish this quilt for her!
