This is my 3rd version of this quilt, the first one for my Grandies, the second for a friends grand daughter for Christmas last year, and this one is for a friend to give to her sister who is expecting a baby.
Gill asked me to make this for her well before Christmas last year but said she was in no real hurry for it. So naturally I went made and purchased all of the fabric and traced a few owls and then tucked it away in my sewing room.
Then I realised it was April and I had better get a move on with it – where does the time go?
I backed it in a lovely soft flannel and used a pretty stripe for the binding.
It is shadow quilted around the trees and owls with a loopy all over stipple on the rest of the quilt.
