Daughter, Angie, does sew - clothes and misc. craft projects. This is her first quilt made for a girl at her work who is having a baby in a couple of weeks. Her coworkers took up a collection for the materials and told her to keep whatever was left over - $5 and not even a half yard of fabric total, we planned very carefully (-;

She added stuffing behind the owl body and the moon - hard to see that in pictures and it makes it more cuddly, kind of like a mini-pillow in the middle of the quilt.

The colors are a little more vivid that photos show, but you get the idea. She used VERY tiny rick rack for the vest details and SID.
She did a fabulous job of quilting - NO puckers on the back at all - I'm jealous.

AND she hand sewed all of the binding!

Magazine where she got her inspriation.

Close up of details - tiny tiny rick rack for vest details. LOVE the fabric 'outside' the windows.

Tell your daughter - Great job!

What issue of Quilts and More is that from? I need an owl for a quilt I am making.

She did a wonderful job, it's just darling. I love the constellation fabric that you see through the window, great choice!

What a great idea to add more puff to the owl and moon. I love it!
