More fabric and Owl Quilt

I got more fabrics in the mail!

Here’s the pile all washed and ready to be ironed, the orange funky fabric I already used for backing for the Bowtie GO! quilt and the butterfly fabric above it I will use for my OWL quilt

So I finally got all the owl blocks embroidered and finished sewing the top of the quilt. I LOVE it!!

I’m turning it into a pattern and named it “Embroidery Frames”

as you can use any 5 x 7 embroidery files for the blocks and “frame” them and turn into this quilt. – Or you can use a FOCUS fabric in the middle instead.

The pattern is now being “tested” by a few others.

Meanwhile my little HELPER has outgrown her crib, she now sleeps in a double bed that used to be her sister’s

Bea I really like that quilt, the owls are cute but you just gave me an idea for a panel I bought last summer that has oblong preprinted bird blocks. Thank you for sharing this! Maybe I'll get out my EQ7 tonight and play around :-)
