I love owls, which is funny because in real life I don’t much care for anything that flies. I don’t like birds, butterflies, owls – anything that can swoop at me. I know butterflies? But it is true, they freak me out, which is why I don’t go in butterfly houses at the zoo.
Anyways, owls and little cute birds in quilting and sewing projects I love. So does a friend of mine, Karen. She is having a baby, any day now in fact and decided to do her nursery in owls.
I found this cute pattern and kit at Connecting Threads and wanted to get it for myself – but had to stop myself because really why would I need an owl quilt? But when my friend Karen said she was doing an owl theme I ordered it so I could at least make it.
Aren’t these owl cute? I love the silly little eyes – french knots.
I quilted it this the other day. I stitched in the ditch around the hour glass blocks and stippled around the trees and owls as tightly as I could .
Learned Today: Next time I will also stitch down the owls to the quilt, not just the background squares so the don’t stick up.
