Nikki, Sent me her OWl to be quilted with requests of :
Clouds in the background
Wood grain on branch
feathers in the owl
I add a few extras just for texture....quilted a simple stipple in the last border. I also added a vein to each leaf.
I wanted to break up the feathers...so I quilted rounded edges in the blue areas..and more of a pointed edge in the body..adds a bit of texture and breaks it apart.
This is an adorable quilt...she used fabrics from Connecting threads....This is her own pattern.
I quilted this on my INNOVA all free hand..no pantographs or computer quilting.
Thanks for looking.
