My Giveaway Quilt

I keep seeing Owls every where in the craft world.Little fabric sculptures. logos, fabric and knitting patterns though unlike the 1970's no macrame yet!
I think it is rapidly becoming synonimous with anything crafty which is why I decided on a wise old owl for my little quilt. It has been ages since I designed something completely from scratch but I felt as I was giving it away it had to be all my own work. An hour later and the whole thing was mapped out on brown paper( brown paper that somebody in this house has tidied up). I also wanted the fabrics to be cheerful, spring, Eastery type colours which took some serious scrabbling through the scrap bag.
I am pretty pleased how he turned out. I almost whipped up something else as he looked gorgeous on my wall! I think I might make him again as soon as I find the brown paper!


  1. That quilt is PERFECTION! Love all the details - the motif placement on his wings, how the quilted lines "hug" his body, how his eyes are just the right size. Amazing work :-)


  2. Oh, that is so sweet!

    I'm so glad you didn't keep him, or her, my daughter has christened her Olive, she is so beautiful, and apparently far too beautiful for me, as my seven year old daughter has decided she is to live on her bedroom wall, and she looks absolutely perfect there. Thank you so very much, a very happy Jo, and a very, very pleased Poppy.
