april collage and a few owls and blue strip quilt top

Here's a little collage of APRIL things I've made

OOPSIE, just noticed picasa (or me) picked the same picture of the bubble gum blocks twice.

Yesterday I did finished stuffing and sewing closed 3 owls for the craft show, don't they look like they were JUST talking about me and then when I snapped a picture, they look innocently away?? hmm :-)

Then I decided to work on this blue strip quilt top, the black fabric for the sashing and border is actually a small dot, close up you can see the seams on the border, but it's not too bad.
After it was all done, I noticed that one of the rows are slight off from the row below it, oh well! it's not bad and I'm not fixing it, this will most likely be a donation quilt or a giveaway quilt, so I don't really care, is that bad?
It turned out to be a nice size 49" x 63" so a nice snuggle or lap quilt.

You sure have been really busy. I don't know how you do it all. The owls were talking about what they wanted to snack on when you aren't around. Guard your M&Ms closely.

I love your owls. Especially their eyes.

Those owl are really cute! I've never tried making any stuffed toys, but these look like they'd be fun.
