Let’s Bee Social #206

Posted on: December 6th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

On the drawing board this week… Buffalo Plaid.

I keep seeing Buffalo Plaid prints all over the place this year. And I am liking it a whole big lot. The nice thing about this type of plaid is that it lends itself well to being used in a patchwork setting. The first design I came up with was the Moose.

Then I modified my Bear from the MOD Bear Paw quilt and placed him in the popular red and black plaid you will typically see.


I made a couple wolf poses and then wondered how this one would look against a random low volume background instead of the plaid. Above is the sitting wolf and below is the lying wolf.

These plaids are popular in red, green, blue or grey. It’s really hard to choose just one!


Now… It’s your turn for Show and Tell!!!

    These are great Lorna! Love the larger size versions of these animals!

  8. Alison V. says:

    This is just so creative and would be so awesome in all flannels for a super snuggly manly quilt! My husband would LOVE the wolf version. 🙂

  9. The moose, the bear, the wolf, how to choose?!

  11. Jayne says:

    The moose got me! And I love the plaid too! The combination is perfect this time of the year!

  12. Tish Stemple says:

    I LOVE how the silhouettes stand out against the plaid backgrounds.

  13. Gorgeous quilts.You are too cool for school, Lorna

  14. Lynette says:

    Yes!! Love the Moose on the blue! so very cool.

  15. Angela says:

    Love the sitting wolf!

  16. I'm partial to that moose! He is sort of transparent clomp-clomping across the plaid, as moose are wont to do…and yes, I should know, having lived literally amongst them for 13 years on our Alberta acreage. 🙂 None here in southern Ontario, and oddly enough, very few deer! Great ideas, Lorna!

  17. I love the blue moose!!!!!

  18. Sewmotion says:

    Excellent, the animals look so effective on those plaid backgrounds, nice work!

  19. SarahZ says:

    oh Lorna! I love patchwork plaid quilts…way to take it up a notch by adding one of your critters to it!!!! Any of them would look great…I'm thinking your squirrel would be adorable😊

  20. Those buffalo prints are wonderful! Great designs…hard to choose!

  21. Will the moose pattern be for sale?
