It's Friday! Are you excited? I love Fridays!!! Thank you for those of you that are stopping by from Summer's blog! Has her work not been out of this world! I loved all of her projects, but I think her Kimono Kids card was my favourite! The attention to detail and tiny little pieces blew me away! Thanks for sharing your talents with us, Summer!
Today's project was probably my favourite yet I have the worst photos of it! I was so excited to be DONE this project as it took a while, that I completely forgot to take a picture of it before I shipped it off! I was devastated when I realized that as I may not have ever seen it again! I'm okay with handing over the projects and not getting them back from SU, but I was a little sad with not having a photo! So if you happen to have a better picture of this project, I'd love to see it:) Thank you so much!!!
Alrighty, enough of my sob story....here are the details! The owls were created in MDS and filled with DSP in MDS. I then printed the owls on iron on transfer (actually my great friend Christine helped out in this department...thanks Chris!) and then I used a professional company to iron on the images onto the vanilla fabric. The eyes are all made out of buttons. I used a few different dies to embellish the quilt. I had stitched around each of the owls, the embellishments and then on the fabric squares I hand stitched the big flower die (that is now retired). The edge of the quilt is our wide striped grosgrain ribbon pleated and stitched on:) I am excited to create another quilt with the new fabric coming out in the holiday mini. I found quilting to be quite relaxing and I love the final look!
Thank you so much for your kind comments and emails this week as you've participated in our Artisan Blog Hop! I'm hoping the group of us will do something again soon:) As I'm sure you've seen, the nine other demonstrators are ridiculously talented and their work blew me away! Thank you ladies for sharing with all of us and for loving what you do!
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with a video post for you:) Take care,
