My good friend Sara just had a baby boy and I made this quilt for him. I made it out of baby flannel so its super soft. The quilt is a little less than 40 inches square. The fabric has little owls on it, some with mama and baby owls together. I love it! I found the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics in Lexington, KY over Christmas. Oh how I wish we had a JoAnn’s close by here. The selection is amazing compared to Hancocks.
I wanted to try some more complicated pieceing for this quilt and I had fun doing it. I cut out tons of little triangles, and learned a lot about piecing them together. I used this free pattern to make it, I definitely needed to follow a pattern for a design that was this complicated. I used Joelle Hoverson’s book and Denise Schmidt’s book a ton for tips and help in the quilting process. I’m so glad I got these books. I know I’ll use them a lot in the future.
Making this quilt was a lot of fun, and made me realize that I’d really like to take a quilting class sometime in the next year. I’ve heard of a store over by the Rave that has classes, maybe I’ll look them up. I’ve also been thinking about making some cute things to sell. But for now I have so many new babies to make cute things for, so esty will have to wait. But maybe someday?
