The Loon is Done

 I made it just under the wire again (it's only 5 pm, March 31 here in Winnipeg). This quilt is part of a challenge to raise money for the Humane Society. A pack of 3 fabrics were given to each participant and you were required to use 2 of the 3 fabrics, plus as many others as you want, to make a quilt under the theme "Animals, Animals". The green reeds and royal blue fabric used for for the ripples were the challenge fabrics. The total of 60 quilts will be auctioned off by silent bid at our quilt show. I figured there would be a ton of puppy dog and kitty cat quilts so wanted to make something that might appeal to the cottage goers.  I used an old book I have on loons for reference and sketched my own design. Now I'm off to see what everyone else did this month!

Happy Stitching

Looks great! I like that you did something a bit different from the normal dog and cat themes.
