My WIP Wednesday #10

Rolling right along through those UFOs!! Main drive is now on What a Hoot, Devon! 




Everybody has his wings and heart, just need to put on the eyes, beaks, and the one guy's graduation cap and tassel. (20 Owls altogether) Then I can trim the blocks and make an owl party amongst the 16-patches that have been waiting for months.  :D


It'll look like this (an original design that I created last year for our first daughter's graduation - it's a long twin, perfect size and brightness for fitting a dorm bed and brightening up a drab tiny room). . . 




. . . only, with these requested colors. (Well, sorta. The blues camera'd pretty darn true for once, but those "reds" are mostly raspberry pink variations.)






Then it gets a border like this:



















And hopefully next week I'll be reporting that I'm working up the tutorial on making that Celtic Knot corner without chopping the lines all up. I'm finicky that way - can't stand to sacrifice what should be obviously flowing lines to speed. Sometimes you just need to put the extra effort into awesomeness.  :)

Hugs and Kisses from Above: Just waiting for the minky to get here so I can quilt it. (Better come soon - this must be completed one week from tonight!) Been toying with quilting ideas.
