“Owl in the Tree” quilt – Part 2

Published on 02/20/13

I do not know what I enjoyed more – designing or quilting this quilt. Especially since I knew how much my friend was going to love the sweet owl.

I decided to put in on the long arm. I used a double batting for it – a cotton batting on the bottom and a polyester batting on the top.

The center was quilted with swirls. The tree was quilted with purple thread in a “tree-like” manner. I love the way the purple fabric with the quilting looks like a tree trunk with texture and dimension. The border was quilted with a feather.

I had a horrible accident while quilting this quilt. I accidentally left my little scissors on the quilt and rolled it up when I advanced the leaders. It left a hole in the top!!! I solved the problem by adding a small hummingbird to the area. Since the hummingbird is my logo, it was like adding a little bit of me into the quilt. =)
