    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.

    I know that little girl is going to be "over the moon". It's beautiful and what little girl doesn't love glitter.

    Love the quilt and adorable owls. Too much work to go on a camping trip I think but we make quilts and give them to family members and they can do whatever they want to do with them I guess. We can't tell them not to use it can we??!!

    Great quilt Tannis! Your fabric choices are perfect and your grand daughter will love the extra touches of glitter and glam.
