The owls are finished.. here they are all piled up next to my sewing machine ( a bit of a mess, I know)
I also finished the centre panel today, unfortunately I did not purchase enough of the little floral fabric that I used on the owls for the centre, not sure how that happened, I must have read the instructions wrong. But the saving grace was I had a spot print with pink, Green, yellow and red spots which matched the colours on the flowers and DH agreed that it would be ok for the centre.
This quilt is being made for one of the ladies that works with him, so I am involving him in the decision making. The other decision he helped me on was the colour of the trees. The original pattern (and the one like this I made last time) has four green trees, all in a different green print. But I had this bird print in pink and green and as the quilt is for a little girl he agreed that it was ok to have pink and green trees, I think the bird print is cute.
This means that there will be no stitching from me until Sunday. And of course my plan then is to attach the owls to the inner border on this quilt. I think, all going well I should get the outer border done too, so then its just the quilt pinning and quilting to go.
Footnote: After I loaded the pics, I noticed that the centre yellow and pink hourglass block is wonky, so I will unstich that one and replace it.
