 Finally finished this quilt. The top was completed in 2013. It is the mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter called Celtic Mystery. I made it smaller than her top. Mine is 75" square and I quilted on my Bernina 780 using the embroidery hoop and the Gingko leaves pattern from Amelie Scott Jumbo pack 1. It will be a gift for a family member.

Urban Owls my way

My Urban Owl quilt hanging on my dining room wall. 
The pattern is by Wendy Williams of the flyingfish company. But I did modify it a bit. I  changed the pattern of 3 of the corner stars and I also changed the dimensions of the first border around the central block. 
I needle turn appliqued, and machine pieced the top. 
To the back I added a needle turn applique of a branch with a nest, my original design using the leaves and branch at the front for inspiration.

Back corner label. I will hand write on it.

New projects on the way

Urban Owls


This pattern is by Wendy Williams and it is called Urban Owls. I am making as a challenge with some of my Bee friends. 

I am using needle turn applique and some prepared turned under seams with glue. It is a challenge to myself to learn more techniques.

I have also modified a few things to make it my own quilt. The lower first border (green circle fabrics), is larger than the original pattern. I was thinking of green grass full of dandelions.

The 8 point stars are supposed to be of 2 different patterns (3 of each pattern). But this quilt is so busy, that I decided that all 6 being of the same pattern is OK. 

I will trim the blocks just before attaching to the center. I  still need to make the blocks that you see missing here.
