Owls


Happy Owls
40 x 56


I used to participate in a monthly Happy Block swap that was a lot of fun until too many people neglected to follow through on their end of the swap and as a result I lost a lot of blocks.   But that's another story. 

So, I have a box of all kinds of Happy Blocks that need to be made into quilts. Every once in a while I actually dig in and do that.  When Sara's Hands to Help Charity Quilt Challenge came along I dipped into the box and came up with some Happy Owls, made a few more Happy Owls and now this quilt will soon be going to Happy Chemo. 


I quilted in some branches and leaves on my plain Jane Janome (DSM). 


This was a Q2 goal (#13)   for 2015 Finish Along
At the end of May I will link up with Julie's Binding Blitz.

Today I'm linking up to

What a darling quilt. I didn't realize there were that many owl prints - all so cute. Your box of happy blocks will be an great WIP generator. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone!

Happy owls, indeed. I especially like the 'ziggy zaggy' block. Makes me smile.
