Owl Quilting

Wow, its been ages since I last posted anything on my blog.  It’s been ages since I did any stitching too.  I bought a magazine zonks ago with a cute owl doorstop freebie.  I came across it this weekend and thought I’d do a bit of handquilting.

I cut out the shapes, added some Hobbs batting and started to do a bit of stitching.

Hand quilting, owl

Hand quilting the owl

Boy, am I rusty!  I’m going to carry on hand quilting with 6 strands of embroidery floss around the heart and eyes.  Then I’m whizzing the whole lot under the sewing machine for a bit of freeform machine quilting….it’s so much faster!

Hope you’ve had some stitchy fun this weekend too.

Happy Stitching!
