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

Have a beautiful day, my dears!
