Owl Quilt Top

 As you can see there was a bit of preparatory work to be completed before we could even start any sew at all.

 This took most of Thursday / Friday  before  Bobbie arrived and continued long after the two of us had partaken in much chatter and chocolate consumption. Saturday we spent the day appliqueing our owl down and making the eyes for our owls. A short trip to Spotlight to stretch our legs, then finial our bodies gave in to exhaustion.

Made plans for Bobbie to return through the week, when we then pieced our owl panels together put in our sashings  and started on the boarders.

It was then decided to continue at our own pace to complete the project as making another time to meet up before Bobbie leaves Toowoomba for her adventure of traveling around Australia in a Bus, was going to prove difficult.

Placed on top and bottom boarders on last Friday arvo.

Then today l finial completed the two side boarders not with out some measurement drama of course. Just love the way it has all turned out.

Bright is something l would normal stay away from but l find myself being drawn more and more towards them.  Just love the colours Bobbie chose for us.......
