On my last post, I asked if anyone could guess what animal I planned to make with this quilt.
The two clues were:
1. It lives outside
2. When it speaks it asks a one word question.
Dayna guessed an owl and...
She was right!!!
Here is a photo of 2 of the 4 quadrants laying next to each other. I still have no idea how I am going to join the four finished quadrants, but Dee of Deeroo designs promises me that if I trust her, she will show me the way. I guess this means I have to trust her!
Here is a close up of quadrant #2. I used a pencil on the plain white top fabric to draw the eyes and nose. It helped having that as a guide. Dee also said to leave a 1/2 inch of space along the sides, so I drew that 1/2 inch border with my pencil as well.
When I started this quilt, I knew I wanted to incorporate an owl into it somehow. I wasn't sure how I was going to do this so I started scouring flickr for inspiration. I searched "owls" and within a few pages this little cutie appeared. It was designed by eberfdias. I sent him (I think it is a him) an email message via flickr asking him if he would mind if I used his design as inspiration for this quilt and he said he would be honored.
What do you think so far?
