Finally something on the design wall!


I feel like all I've been doing for the last 6 weeks is FMQing.  I did finish the top for the Balitmore Album quilt, but just can't seem to bring myself to do any quilting quite yet.  I really want to be in the mood to quilt when I do that one.  Time to regenerate with some fun projects.   I'm working on this little number.  If I can get it done in time for Hands2Help, this will be my second quilt for a great cause.  I have until 7/31 so should be able to get this one done.   It was sooooo good to start something new.  I think it's just amazing the things you can do with HSTs.  Hmm, thinking it might be a bit of nightmare sewing it all together. I'll need to keep my seam ripper close by!  Lots of labeling to do.  I ran out of design wall space.  I have all the HSTs done and some left over for the back too!

Daughter number 2 was out this weekend.  She's expecting in January and we still don't know if she's having a boy or girl.   Soooooo we decide to start a boy quilt and a girl quilt.  The extra one will be donated to  100 Quilts for Kids.  Arlene fell in love with this owl fabric.  They have a boy version as well (she's really hoping for a girl).  So the theme is owls.  She was browsing the web and found some adorable owl pictures.  Here's what we have so far.  I think she will definitely have a one of kind baby quilt!!   She loves them and that's what really matters.

Sherrif Owl 
Here's Ballerina owl, Sherrif Owl and Scooter Girl Owl.  Scooter Girl owl still needs stitching around every thing, but she just cracks me up!  Only one done for the baby boy quilt and that would Sheriff Owl.  What fun!

  5. Love the owls! So cute and the fabrics just pop. Owls are my favorite birds I do believe. I went to the OKC zoo this weekend and when I got home and looked at my pictures I had mostly owls and the new baby elephant.

  6. Where did you get that cowboy owl? I want one!!! DH collects B Western cowboy stuff and I collect owls. Wouldn't this be perfect for us? Oh, and your quilt top is beautiful, too. ;-)

  10. I love your quilts! The one on the design wall is gorgeous. The owls are spectacular. How are you doing the edges? It looks like dimensional embroidery. Not only will your grand love the quilt, but some lucky child will too. Thanks for visiting my blog too.

  12. I totally understand what you mean about giving the Album quilt a little break! I love your new project - I swear I'm going to do a quilt in those colors one day but instead of a white background I'm thinking a brown background! yours is quite lovely - my fav colors!
