    Owl Quilt Ready for Camping!

    I finally got it finished for our granddaughter! It was fun trying something new - the glitterflex ultra is something I'll use again, hopefully for lettering etc. on t-shirts for her. It would look cute on a bib, too! Oh, no! I'm getting too many ideas now! I've attached close-ups of the glitterflex plus two pics of the finished quilts. It's about 40" x 40."
    Thanks so much for looking!

    it's adorable, but what is glitterflx. it came out cute. I see that the owls are all glittery, does it remain soft?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Glitterflex is a glittery fabric that I bought from Sew Inspired. Bonnie has a video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAGJpWlkJw4
    When you pull off the clear carrier sheet on the top of the glittery sheet, it becomes very soft like regular fabric. It is a little bit "rough" but I didn't have a single sparkle on my hands, work table etc. It seems to be very durable and washes & dries well.

    That is about as cute as it can be. It looks like a lot of work, and your work is SUPER. You will be the Grandmother of the year. Thanks for sharing. BrendaK
