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.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
