Whoo's Your Baby Quilt



This is Evelyn’s Whoo’s Your Baby quilt and the pattern can be found in the book Jelly Babies by Karen Costello.   When she was working on this quilt at our guilds Spring Retreat I was looking at the patterns and suggested she make the eyes different.  The original eyes are just black circles and that made the owls look a bit creepy and she agreed.  So she had some fun making the eyes more expressive by added the yellow to give each owl some personality.   She even made one with closed eyes that is so cute.



I quilted CC’s in the colourful squares, free hand swirls in the background, and SID around the owls and details on them.


The backing was a yellow Fireside and the batting Quilters Dream Puff to keep the quilt light.
