Blogger's Quilt Festival

I thought I'd enter my baby quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival put on by Amy's Creative Side. Nothing like waiting til the last minute.
I made this Owl baby quilt in June. It is 54" x 45". I know that is a little big for a baby quilt but I like things on the bigger side.
I found these machune embroidery applique owls at Designs by JuJu and just couldn't resist them.

This was the second quilt I made using the owls. The 1st one had a plain border.
I think the pinwheels really made this one pop.

 I quilted it on my longarm quilter.  I am having a blast with my quilter. Just wish I had gotten one years ago. My husband tried to get me one but I always said I didn't have the room.
I made room and it is well worth it.

I decided to round the corners and use a multi colored binding to give it the finishing touches.
This has turned out to be one of my favorite quilts.

Congratulations on your win! The owls are gorgeous, and the pinwheels certainly did add that extra little pop of colour.
