Today's Saturday Show is a one of the first quilts Miss H made. It was one that started her love of aqua and owls.
Miss H designed it herself (with help from the Mother). Isn't it coolio?
This is the owl fabric she decided to centre the quilt around.
The whole quilt has been quilted and tied with buttons by the Mother. Miss H started hand quilting it but she found it so difficult to pick up all the layers with her needle that she asked the Mother to do it.
The thread used to stitch the squares was originally a sparkly thread. Unfortunately it broke so often. So the Mother added some ordinary brown thread with one strand of the sparkly one which made it a lot easier.
The pinwheels each have a button in the middle.
Miss H put the cutest aqua spotted fabric on the back.
The border fabric the Mother found is absolutely perfect. It includes all the colours in the quilt.
Even with all the difficulties to make it this quilt is one that Miss H will always love.
