Weekend Finish: Owl Quilt

Woohoo! I finished a quilt!

It's been awhile since I've been able to say that. I adore the red flower print from Hugs & Kisses by Linda DeBono for Henry Glass. It was given to me by a friend that was doing some destashing (thanks, Jes!) and I knew I had to make a baby girl quilt with it. The chevron-quilt-craze the world has been in for the last couple years may be dying down now, but here's one more for you:


Mom was the one that voted to applique an owl on the back, and I think she did an excellent job. This is raw-edge applique with machine button-hole stitching along the edges.The little twig legs are what I call "sloppy stitched" on.

Ducky Baby Quilt

Look at this adorable quilt my mom just finished! She made it for my sister Anna (who is not pregnant...yet), so she chose gender-neutral fabrics. The ducks are raw-edge appliqued with machine button-hole stitching. She used her favorite rotary cutter to get those accurate seams. Because this is the first quilt she's made for Anna, she wanted it to be extra special and spent hours hand quilting it.




We also did a pink and brown version, without the ducks, here.

Pink and Brown Lattice Quilt

A close friend of mine is expecting her first baby in a few months, and this was her shower gift.


This is the same pattern as the Ducky Baby quilt my mom made for my sister here. It's amazing how choosing different fabric and dropping the applique created a totally different design. The greens are the same, but the new quilt has a busy print background and nice dark/light contrast.

Note: Use ¼” seams for basting and ½” seams for everything else.

1. Cut two A rectangles 12” by 8 ¼ " out of each of the face, lining, and interlining fabrics. Using a 6-inch diameter bowl, round the top two corners of each of the six A pieces. Make two notches 5” up on either side from the bottom and one notch in the middle on the top, as shown by the arrows in the diagram.





2. Start with one face A and one interlining A. Baste wrong sides together using a ¼ inch seam along the thr…
