it came out cute. I too am curious about the stitching around the pieces. Is it an applique stitch, zig zag, or what kind of stitch. also, how big is it. a lot of fun in that quilt.

So dog gone cute! I love owls. I have seen three kinds up where I live. The cutest was a tiny but full grown one that is a ground owl. He was fearless and so proud to show off his beauty.

Here is what they look like ..

Yes, it is all appliqu. I started with lots of wings, eyes & feet, then chose the body sizes/ shapes. After fusing all the parts of each owl I hung them on my wall for a few weeks.

while I made all those flying geese. Something like 130 of them...
then I finally started fusing the owls to blocks, machine blanket stitched each & every piece down, ( invisible thread on top, white Aurifil in bobbin)
the big center owl was the inspiration that started it all, made him last, then laid him down& started playin.
Its queen sized, will be a Christmas gift for a 12 year old who Loves owls& and just got a new room & new big bed.
