Baby Quilt with Matching Card

Hi All,

I’ve been trying to keep busy while being snowed in here in Boston.  We just got over 2 feet of snow and more to come this weekend.  I don’t know when I’ll be able to get out so I’m trying to keep busy using what supplies I have on hand.

My daughter needed a baby shower gift and asked for a baby quilt.  Wow, what fun….something to do!  The colors wanted were teal, grey and white, sort of hard for baby prints. I happened upon some owl fabric with similar colors so I went for it.  It has a bit of yellow, too.  Best I could find.

Simple squares with an appliqued central owl motif.  I actually scanned the owl fabric, enlarged the owl and used it as a pattern for my applique pieces.  I also added a bit of ric-rac.  Instead of quilting, I decided to tie this quilt, something I haven’t done for years.

I’m working on some more projects and will post pics soon.  Be sure to come back and see what trouble I’m getting myself into!!
