Approximately 43" x 60" - just about my favourite size to work on!
Avril's advice and quilted wavey lines and swirls in my best attempt at steam rising from a cup of coffee. I found out how difficult it was to keep a linear pattern looking good whilst using a hopping foot - I needed to shift my hand position several times on each line which didn't always go well! Still, a few minor bumps on a line will just give more character to it!
This owl was made at my quilt group meeting. If I was to make another one I think that I'd leave off the scarve and add some tummy detail..... but I think that the scarf is to tie him to conventional Christmas colours.
Always fun to stitch and chat to others!
