How I missed signing up for this earlier, I don't know.... But it's open access, so I'm jumping on it.
Who needs Houston anyways!! - totally jealous :-)
If you've followed my blog since before July, You'd know I got published for the first time in McCalls! yippee.
This is the quilt! "It's a Hootie"
This was the EQ sketch I sent them.
As you can see I changed the border color and then had the eyes look in different directions.
Fabrics are from Timeless Treasures, and the green was just really NICE, so I chose that instead of blue.
It's an appliqued quilt
It's a wall hanging or baby quilt
Measures 46" x 46"
Long arm quilted on my long arm.
I also made these matching pot holders :-)
Here's the magazine, in case you missed it. It's sept/oct issue, might still be for sale
I squealed when I saw the magazine and my quilt in it!
I thought it was going to be in quick quilts instead, so I didn't expect it in this one, so I had sat down and flipped thru the pages and THERE it was...
I can't remember if I showed these pics too, but I took a few while making this quilt, here's the blocks just ironed together, then I button hole stitched all the way around
Here's the blocks laid out
a few closeups of the owls
and the pot holders again :-)
The whole top finished- before quilting
The quilt is done being quilted
On the main part I quilted feathers and swirls
I just outlined the owls, otherwise left them alone
I also changed the thread color, here you can see it on the back
Here it's all done and ready to send off.
Happy festival :-)
