"To OWL a Good Night" Part 2

April 17th 2012
REMINDER:  I got this pattern from a magazine, see first post.

The Owl quilt update: As I was engrossed in cutting, assembling and sewing, I was also thoroughly enjoying myself in the piecing part of the quilting process; the time passed rather quickly. What’s more, it was great for the crafty diet! I skipped dinner one evening and lunch the next day. A snack here or there or cereal and milk did the trick. Here is the general layout:

All pieces sewn together and ironed on.

Close up of owl before Applique stitching.

Close up of owl applique “satin” stitch around
all the edges, see the difference?
Zoom on the face.
Quilted, bound and finished! 
(It turned out a little lumpier than I would have liked.)

Quilted design mirrors fabric in window panes.
The rest of the quilt is quilted like this: below
This is how the back looks.
And way below in the corner is a personal label.
I’d like for the label to look more “sewn” but for now, that’s what I have.

I hope she likes it!!!
