    My Owl quilt

    This quilt I made for a granddaughter who already had her bedding. She chose a focus fabric with owls and one withName:  DSC01398.JPG
Views: 3704
Size:  129.0 KB stripes in these colors plus a blue/grey that I didn't care for. I chose the nearly plain fabrics for this quilt and made the large applique from a maagazine I found in my stash. I am pretty happy with the results. I like to make quilts for babies which are large enough to last for several years. I see no purpose in making quilts which they will outgrow in a few weeks or months. I try to chose designs which aren't too babyish as well

    I really like the angled corners - very unusual and very effective. (And of course the owl is insanely cute.)

    Really cute. Love the colors. What is the pattern please.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
