the owl quilt

I'm super sleepy today, and I choose to blame Daylight Savings. If I still had this quilt, I might be tempted to take a little nap under it, but it was a gift for my little Grandma, who has been through a rather rough patch, health-wise.

In the above photo, the quilt is folded twice, so you're seeing a quarter of it. It's somewhere between a single bed & cot size, and it's perfect for brightening up a hospital bed I think! It's not really a proper quilt, in that it doesn't have any batting inside, it's just organic cotton with my owls, and the back is pretty flannel from Patchwork on Central Park. I stitched down some of the tree trunks to keep both sides in place - alas, my skills at sewing such large pieces of fabric leave something to be desired, as the owl fabric ended up longer than the flannel, so it's a bit lumpy down the bottom. Oops.

This is another sneak peek of something. More very soon.
