So,this is the owl I made for Tracy. I had never made a rag quilt before so it had its learning curves. But I was very happy with how it turned out. One of my friends from work held it up for me so I could get a good picture of it. You can really see how big it is and you can see his feet sticking out at the bottom.
I was hooked! Then I had to make more of these rag quilts. So, I started making birthday gifts for all of the little ones. These next two were for my sister's grandchildren. I loved them as well.
My friend, Doreen, saw my first owl and thought her daughter would love one. She commissioned me to make one for her. We went to Jo-Ann's and picked out all of the fabrics together. I hope her daughter loved the results as much as the two of us did.
And, last, but certainly not least, I made one for my brother's granddaughter. As of this post, she hasn't received it yet as it is sitting in the post office waiting for her mommy to pick up the package. I didn't want to post any of these pictures until the last child received their quilt so it would be a surprise. I hope she and mommy love it. This may be my favorite of all of them. Maybe.
They are all large and fun with cozy batting inside so they'll be warm too. They can also be wall hangings. Now, I am working on my 3rd owl. I am helping my friend with hers. With a much different color scheme, I think it will be very cute. Should be finished soon. The cutting and marking the quilting lines are the hardest part. The sewing together is a breeze.
Thanks for stopping by!
