    What to do with some orphan squares - a dolly quilt

    My g/f gave me some orphan squares from a charm pack she used for a baby quilt. Some of the squares had owls on them so I created a dolly quilt for my granddaughter McKenna who loves owls. I sewed the charm 1/2 square triangles into a big block and then added borders from my stash to enlongate it, added a cute backing and FMQ in less than an hour I created something that will rock my granddaughter's world. I can't wait to see her face on Wednesday when we arrive in Edmonton, Alberta Canada!

    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    Your DGD will just adore this little quilt. I love all the owls in fabric we are seeing these days.

    I do, too. I wonder why that is? I guess it's like how food on somebody else's plate always looks better than yours... LOL! Your DGD is going to flip when she gets this adorable little quilt! Great job! Have a safe trip & a wonderful visit!
