wise old quilt

(designed by barbara brandenburg of cabbage rose quilts)

this chickadee recently became a member of the joint owl quilt task force, an organization dedicated to creating the 45" x 45" flight of fancy that you see above. membership is exclusive and limited to myself and my mother, the team previously lauded for their work on the top secret watermelon apron project of 2004.

our first official day on the job was this monday, 25 february and we made great progress in a short amount of time. those cute little owls were our focus for day one. they are appliqued to the quilt and required a bunch of tracing, cutting, peeling, placing, and more cutting.

the task force plans to meet several times over the coming weeks and/or months. we will not rest until these owls nest! updates of our progress will be published at this location and readers will be informed on a need to know basis.

Love the quilt. The little bag is cute, too.
