That was without windchill.
Glad I could stay in and do some
meandering to keep warm.
Jackie had asked me to quilt her
gray and white, 36-inch, one block, baby quilt...
preferably with some owl motifs.
After some mulling and sketching,
I came up with an owl
and some pines
Another view of the owl in the pines:
and the whole quilt:
Since she had one large block for her quilt,
I decided one large quilting design would be appropriate.
I sketched and trimmed and re-sketched,
and came up with my beginning templates:
|Top template is my owl design; |
bottom template is my eye and wing placement guide.
The quilting is all (my) hand-guided,
mostly done in the continual line style,
not crossing over previous stitching lines.
Although the entire quilt was only 36 inches square,
it took a little more time than I thought it would,
but it was a fun one to do.
She loved the finish, as did I,
so I've saved my sketches/templates,
as I may just use this quilting design again.
Thanks for visiting,
and if you are also in the cold zone,
I hope you are staying warm during this Polar chill.
