Owl Applique

I finished a top for a baby quilt with an owl applique on it. I think that i will do a meander when quilting, but not quilt the owl......that way he will pop! Not that he doesn't pop with the colors I have used. LOLNot such a great picture......but what should I do with his eyes? leave them white or add a black dot in them, etc? I tried drawing a few eyes but didn't care for any of them.
Take care, Cathy

  2. I spotted an owl Edge 2 Edge design on one the sites I get designs from....wish I could think of it at moment brain has gone blank! My mom loves owls and I always thought if I make her another quilt I need to do the owls all over! This quilt is adorable.

  4. I vote for buttons or an orange dot. A french knot with embroidery floss might look really cool!

  12. Precious! My first grandchild was born in Jan. and this is so adorable, I must make something like this. Once I finish my existing project! lol SO funny, I've been making a quilt for my daughter and knew it should be oversized queen. Put is on our King today and it's HUGE! so much make a new one, as my husband fell in love with it... oh well, this is how our quilts evolve and find homes. I truly think they find their own homes sometimes...
    IF you get a chance to visit my blog, I live on Cumberland Isl. in GA and have lots of pics of wild horses,etc. along w/quilting... I love yours! XO

  13. What a great quilt Cathy. I thought about using a circle of black and then orange for each eye. I was wondering too if you drew the owl or was it a pattern? It's so cute.
