    I used some old owl blocks for a quilt as you go. I used a lot of patterns from Leah Day's blog. I enlarged them and used a different one on each block. I changed some a little, and used a traditional feather on the borders. Someone posted that her designs are too dense, but if you make them bigger, they seem to work great.

    Stunning!
    The owls are adorable but the FMQ in the blocks is magnificent.
    I love that kind of quilting.

    The quilt is as darling as can be. And you are right, you can make Leah Day's Designs bigger. It just takes less fabric when practicing to practice smaller.

    Your work is beautiful, and I love the colorful and cheery owls. I have Leah's patterns printed out, but I am very intimidated by them. I just have to dive in very soon.

    Nice quilt. The owls are just too cute. I have recently discovered Leah Day's patterns and intend to use them a lot. I love the quilting on your quilt.

    Wonderful work - I am also a Leah fan, thanks so much for posting such a fabulous example of how her work is NOT just for art quilts, although it works on those too. I am immensely grateful for the time and anergy she has put into creating her catalogue of FMQ designs and giving them to us for free. I sometimes copy them exactly and sometimes use them as a jumping off point to create my own spin. Either way, she's an inspiration. Cute owls too BTW. ;-) :D

    Excellent! Love the quilt and your quilting! You have chosen a nice variety of designs. I really like watching Leah Day - she explains the techniques so clearly that I can understand them and feel able to try them!
