Vivienne's Owl Quilt

It's quilt festival time again.  What a great way to see a lot of quilts. And get many ideas.  I've decided to enter this baby quilt that I made for Vivienne.  Her mom let me know what colors she was decorating with and also said she likes owls.  So here it is.

 I've really enjoyed doing pinwheels and like the way they look, so they made a good border around those owls.  These are colorful owls also, not the normal brown.  
I got the ideas from much searching from other quilts.  There are inspirations everywhere. And then made my design.
 I started with the pinwheels.

 And then worked on my center.

 Kept adding features to my owls. The applique was all fused down.  My quilting is what is keeping it on.


 A friend embroidered the name on for me.

Join in on the fun.  You will find the button on my sidebar.
