There was a bit of a sneak peek on my Instagram and Facebook page yesterday of my latest owl quilt. ESP, which stands for Extra Special People is a local non profit group helping kids and people with special needs. My son has done some volunteering through his school and worked with ESP and they are a really great group of folks. he director contacted me a few months ago to see if I would have a donation for their Big Hearts Pageant in February. Oh course, I sad yes, wanting to help out but I just didn't have anything made that was a good fit.
After securing all of the appliqués with Heat n Bond Lite I went around them with an Applique/Buttonhole stitch in coordinating thread. Here they are after stitching.
All twelve blocks are sewn together so the branches meet up. Here is the top on my design board.
I quilted the top by just sewing a meandering pattern in he background. I left all of the owls and branches alone so they "pop" from the quilt.
Have a great day,
