It feels so good to get another pattern done! I loved making this quilt for my granddaughter Madalyn when she was born. It’s such a bright and cheerful happy quilt!
I love the idea of layering the owl and branches over the nine patch background… it makes be want to try other pieced backgrounds like triangles. As long as it’s not to busy it makes and interesting background for a big quilt.
As with my other patterns this one has a thread painting chart to follow or be inspired by – done as you quilt the top. All the pieces are school glued down rather than fused so it remains a soft appliqué design. Available in my Etsy Store – instant download and physical copy.
If you have never tried thread painting check out this post to see the tutorial on the preparation and in the tutorial section there are links to videos for the thread painting ~ these methods applies to all my patterns.
This is a detail of the quilting which includes the words “who loves you?”, “daddy loves you”, “mommy loves you”, “papa loves you”, “nana loves you”, and “mimi loves you”. I did free motion quilting swirls all over mimicking the the background fabric which has a lot of swirls.
And my cutie pie is modeling for me!
