Owl Quilt.

This is our latest Queen Bee's group quilt.

We all made an owl or a tree, and the lovely Alison put it all together and added the squares and the border.
Then yours truly volunteered to quilt it, though I can't for the life of me remember volunteering :0).

Sorry Liz, I could not resist putting the binding on as that is my favourite part of making a quilt.

I think this one is either going to the local Hospice or the Women's refuge.

I have added the line drawings of the owl and the tree for anyone who would like to make this lovely  quilt. Or like us, make it a group project. Our quilt measures 44 1/2 X  44 1/2 inches.

Ann, another member of our group, has made the same quilt as a baby rug, omitting the trees and filling the centre with 2 1/2 inch squares. I am not sure what happened to the photo of it but it was lovely.

Other news at the Bee this week, Liz finished her baby floor rug for her new grandchild to be. Just in time Liz, baby is due on Thursday..

 I had to put this in as it made me laugh. The two most vertically challenged girls in our group, trying to hold up a rather large UFO that Alison had just finished.

And last, but not least, Maggie's lovely baby quilt. This pattern is called Fiona  but I can't remember who designed it.

Now back to my mending pile, buttons seem to be off everything....

Keep safe and keep stitching..............................Doti..
