First up, the much anticipated Owl Quilt project that has been going on for what seems like forever. I am very close to finishing it but there are just a few details that I am still working out in my head. To create this wall art quilt I used a set that Chantell digitized (which can be purchased at her website) and a set of Owls that Mia digitized (also can be purchased through her blog). Once I am finished and ready to reveal it I will give you more details. But just to give you a little taste, here are pictures of two of the panels.
The tree and the branches are from Chantell's set and the owls are from Mia's. The little squirrel is also digitized by Mia.
Two of my friends Jackie and Beverly have birthdays in basically the same week. I really like making their gifts instead of just buying them something, because I want them both to feel special even though we sometimes celebrate both of their birthdays on the same day. One received a t-shirt with an Aries Zentangle (courtesy of Mia) stitched on it, and the other received a little wall quilt named Seven Layer Cake (courtesy of Chantell).
Label for the quilt.
Another project that I have started is my Aloha quilt. The blocks are from Chantell's website. One reason this one isn't finished yet is because I keep hoping that she will digitize some more blocks. But if she doesn't, I will just stitch some of the existing blocks in different fabrics until I get enough to finish it up. Basically these blocks come two ways; a small 'all in one' block, and then in a 1/4 block, which means you stitch four of them and then sew them together. Just love how it looks so far! There are more finished than what is shown in this picture, but you get the idea!
Ok, that is all for now, thanks for taking the time to catch up with me!
