Good Morning, Hoot!

I finished and gave away this quilt about a month ago, here at last are the photos.

It now belongs to a gorgeous little girl (who I very luckily get a cuddle with about once a week - a fair exchange, I think!).

I designed the quilt around this adorable owl from Valori Wells' Della flannel range, but the little birds are from her Urban Flannel collection, and the circular print form her Bliss flannels - don't they go together well?

I really like the crispness the white gives this quilt, yet the flannels are deliciously soft and snuggly - perfect for a baby.

To keep it snuggly, the quiting is very light - some heart-shaped swirls...

waves in the border...

and I used matching threads to outline the owl and its perch.

When I first pieced the top (way back in November, when I cut my finger!) I wasn't entirely sure of its final destination, but a comment on the photo ensured I kept it aside for the right little girl.

I'm now certain it's in the right home - always a good feeling.
