Ive been making some new owl pictures for my etsy store this week. I like to put them on a nice linen background and use some of my favorite quilting prints for their bodies. My stock of vintage buttons work great for the eyes. I give them detail with a little free motion thread painting. all of the frames that I use are vintage and re-purposed. Now back to my quilts!

This is Quilt #6 of my 23 unfinished quilt tops! I made this quilt last year for the value quilt along. I challenged myself to use fabrics from my stash on this one! This fabric is all Marimeko prints from Finland that I purchased in the early 80's or late 70's! It was interesting working with such vibrant and bold patterns to co the quilt along.
