The owl quilt is finally done:
I think the reason it took so long was the way I quilted each block in 2 concentric rectangles. Not fun. So even when I had some time to work on, I wouldn't always. And then I had 14,000 ends to darn. Not an exact count.
But it's done now and I think it makes a handsome quilt.
It's pretty large for a baby quilt - 44" x 57", so I'm calling it a youth quilt.
I'm also really tickled with how well the back coordinates:
Those dots were from a different store, and I knew they were older, but during quilting I noticed the date of 2009 on the selvedge, so 3 years older and just a perfect match. Crazy, huh?
Anyway, my shop has been updated, and I will be linking this to Crazy Mom Quilts for her Finish it up Friday series. So glad that's back! I love seeing what everyone else is doing.
Moving on, I've started a log cabin quilt with my Aster Manor leftover fat quarters:
Do you cut each piece to size, or just lay them out on strips like this?
