OWLS!! - Quilt Festival Entry

Don't we like owls!!  Except I don't think I really want to come upon real ones to closely anyways.   Have you read the book The Silver Chair by CS Lewis?  Now those owls have personality.
 This is a quilt I made for a friend that had a baby this spring.  She likes owls and Ronen is probably learning to like owls. 


I got my ideas from several sources and took bits and pieces from them.  Even button trees.


 I fused the whole quilt and stitched only around the tree before the quilting.  I figured the quilting would do the rest, so why do double duty?


 I didn't have to buy any fabric except for the flannel on theback.  I like things that use what I have, even though by looking at my stash you wouldn't be able to tell I had  taken anything from it.



This size of this quilt is 36" x 48".  Categories are Baby Quilt, Applique, and Scrap Quilts.


Enjoy the rest of the quilts in this great quilt show.
