having a hoot wednesday


I recently quilted this cute owl quilt for my neighbor.

I think the pattern is from quiltmaker- part of an animal series!?


I just quilted basic meandering all over, aren’t the eyes fun?


Here’s another Bible BOW- wise woman of Abel

never read about her until now, cool how she stood up and prevented a siege on the city.


So you know I wanted to start the scrappy Trip around the world on Bonnie Hunter’s site

here’s all the strips cut out and ready and there’s LOTS of UGLIES in there


So I matched up a light and dark, if in doubt about the contrast, I took my camera and looked thru with the sepia setting, see how here it’s almost the same.


This one is MUCH better.


couldn’t help take a picture of Sonja sleeping in Sepia also Smile


Here’s strips sewn together in 4s and 2s


While I long arm quilted the Floral Quilt along quilt, Sonja was playing on the floor and quickly rolled under the frame


Last night she rolled over to check out Peanuts feet! yuck!!


Today she’s looking a bit boyish in Jeans and a shirt that’s NOT pink Smile

A loop in each eye--nice job!
Good idea to use the sepia setting to judge contrast--Sonja looks very cute in sepia, too--and in full color! : )

I don't think Sonja could ever look boyish with her pretty little face. :). The owl quilt is adorable!
