Design Wall Monday 7/30/12

Yea!  I'm able to post on a Monday! This isn't on the design wall it's already been gifted to Natalie. 
This is my Scrap Squad #3.  It was highlighted a couple of weeks ago on the Quilty Pleasures blog. 

Check out these colors Jenny wanted me to use to match the stenciling she had done in the baby's room...
I am anxious to see how the quilt washes up as I used a water soluble stabilizer.  I cut out as much of it as I could so hopefully the rest rinses out in the wash.  
Here are the owls all lined up and ready to be attached to the quilt.  I used a  blanket stitch around all the body parts.... lots of body parts!   I still need to hand blanket stitch around the black eyes.  I figure it  would be easier to do those by hand  later.  Um,  I've tried it and, no, it isn't all that easy.  Which explains why only one eyeball has been done. You can get the owl pattern at Quiltmaker's web site. 

Owls in the room. Ok, for you sharp-eyed readers, yes this was before I put the binding on.  Thanks go to Mary of Making Scrap Quilts from Stash for the quilting design idea. And, Dawn at Pajama Quilter who inspired Mary. 

My owl quilt was published on Quilty Pleasures the day Natalie was born.  In the copy I said I was waiting for my grand baby to be born never dreaming she would arrive the very same day.  

For those of you who are looking for the latest installment of the 1800's quilt.  I'll be posting it soon, but in the mean time you can go to Country Piecemaker's web site to download a pdf for it. 
I get gold stars on my forehead for getting EVERYTHING done on my goal's list.
