Thanks for all your questions concerning this quilt. I saw an ad for some pre printed material in an old quilting magazine and said to myself “I can do that”. I drew my own dress (all dresses are the same pattern), cut them out of my scraps and then appliqued them on 10” squares, and then had fun just decorating them with bits of lace, ribbon, buttons, rick rack and anything else I could find. I had a ball and it was “playing paper dolls” all over again. The border in just repeated triangles of
Found this pattern on ebay and decided to make a quilt for my granddaughter for graduation as she loves owls. There are 25 different owl designs and just duplicate and make quilt as large as you want. Thanks for the questions as they make me feel good about learning all about quilting.

2012 - A New Year, a time for reflection, a time to finish UFOs and take on new quilting challenges.
I have always enjoyed sewing, arts and crafts. I started quilting somewhere around 1995 and took a few classes. It wasn't until 2011 that I came to the realization that I am no longer a sewer, artist and crafter. I am a Quilter.
