Owls

I finished another quilt for Project Linus.  This started with the owl print, which had been donated to my local chapter.  I paired it with Kona Lagoon and Kona Titanium, both leftover from other projects, and kept it simple so I would not lose any of the owls.


The back is a piece of minky also donated to the chapter, and it came in not long after I had finished the top.  I do not enjoy working with minky but it was such a nice big piece and quite colorful.


For quilting, I tried something new to me but that I see everywhere: the organic wavy lines technique.  I see it most from Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts, but I have been seen it becoming more and more widespread.  It's done with a walking foot. I liked it, though I space mine farther out than most others I've seen.  I changed threads based on quilt section for this one and I used some variegated threads from King Tut that I had.


Laura from Slice of Pi Quilts challenged herself to make 52 charity quilts this year. That's a lot! My annual goal is 12 quilts donated per year to Project Linus.  This will be #5 for 2018.  I'll link up with Laura when she does her charity quilting link-up for April. 

The owls were goal #16 on my list of Q2 goals for the Finish Along.
