Hello!


This is my first participation in the Blogger's Quilt Festival held at Amy's Creative Side.
Thank you, Amy!

Among a lot of other urgent things, last week I worked hard at this feathered fellow.


Feathered it's only a way of saying. A lot of quilting I had to do!




All began when I saw this cute owl drawing made by my friend Lenus Dragulelei, a very talented Romanian artist who creates illustration for children books. My brain wheels started to roll quickly:
How I could turn the drawn owl in a quilt, but otherwise than only by applique? And the only thing that came in my head was an owl-by-itself quilt, if I may say so.


And step by step, thinking on the go, imagining how should be this or that, I managed to do it.

Because I am the kind of girl who likes to complicate her life, I told to myself that I will not like at all to see the eyes quilted on the quilt/owl back. And I made it a different appropriate quilting.

The only thing that did not came out how I wanted is the dimension. It had to measure about 36" long, but instead, it measures  less than 30". I wasn't paying attention when I did the sketch.

Even so, it could be at least a funny wall quilt.
Surely, the second one will have the right dimension to cover a little girl or a little boy from nose to toes.



I have entered my owl-quilt in Blogger's Quilt Festival Mini Quilt Category.
If you have a little time to spend, please come and vote for your favorite quilt!

I am linking also to Finish it up Friday!

Have a beautiful day, my dears!

Your owl is super happy. Love the quilting detail!

This is adorable. What a great idea to make the owl the whole quilt, instead of smushing him into a rectangle.

Aoife said...

Your owl is fantastic! And I love that the back of the quilt is his back too! I wish I could figure out exactly how you did it all, but part of his charm is probably the mystery :) good luck!
