    This quilt was Fun to make

    This newest finish was the most fun I’ve had in a long time making a quilt. As I started creating blocks and laying this out it kept a smile on my face. Sometimes a quilt is just so much fun to create. This one was a Joy.

    That is a super treasure quilt!!! I have a granddaughter who just loves owls and so I look at everything 'owl' and this is spectacular. I am so glad you had fun making it. And, thank you for sharing it with us-especially me. I will smile all day when I think of it. In fact, I think I will print a picture of it.

    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.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    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 appliqué. 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.
