Rosalie made this beautiful quilt for her granddaughter. It is extra special because she used fabrics from Everly’s great-grandmother for the owl appliqué.
Rosalie gave me the quilt top and said I could do whatever I wanted with it. I started by adding trapunto to the owl, branch and leaves. Then I got out my favourite rulers and went crazy.
Instead of quilting the sashing and the border separately, I decided link them together with my quilting.
The plain backing really allows the free motion quilting to show.
Thank you Rosalie for allowing me to quilt this family heirloom.
