Who 1

Owl quilt 1 is done. I have two more ready to go. I'm hoping that by the end of the week I'll have them done also.
They are quick because they are raw edge applique. I use "Misty Fuse" to adhere my shapes, iron, then stitch around them. I'm not too fond of raw edge, but I'm in a hurry. Those other ideas are getting closer to the surface and I want to start them now, but I know I should finish the owl first. So I treat them as a chore and finish them first, while dreaming of the fun stuff.
I really like this green! I feel like buying the whole bolt!
I quilted it in a "Rainbow" thread form Superior. It has a shine to it that I really liked against this green. But it doesn't show up in the pictures, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
If I'm not doing feathers, I'm doing swirls. I love swirls, they are sew easy. No thinking involved. Just start swirling.
Everyday before I start with these baby quilts, I work on my toile quilt. I'm mostly doing feathers and this is a nice relaxing end to the day. Really, swirls are relaxing.

Take care, Brandie
