Bright Blooms

Just completed my Mini Art Quilt for Round 4 on Craftster, and I was sorry to see it go! But I am really hoping my swap partner will love it too. :) She wanted something in the tree theme so this is what I cam up with:

My partner is also an owl fan so I added a little owl nestled in the leaves.

I sewed each leaf individually, then turned them right side out, tacked them on the tree and then added a button. It meant for a lot of hand sewing, but I wanted the tree to have that texture.

This is the back side:

The quilt measured about 18x25 when it was done I think.

And speaking of being a fan of owls....
Looky what my Mommie found for me at Goodwill for $6! A beautiful ceramic owl lamp:

Now I know this might not be for everyone, but I just love her!!! I named her Olivette and she perches in my entryway. She makes me happy :) it's the little things right?


  1. That quilt is STUNNING! I think I may have done the first or second round of that swap. I'd love to do it again but MAN is that swap a lot of work! I love how your quilt turned out. It is so so beautiful! (The owl is so you as well!)

  2. Well, Spring has Sprung!! That quilt is so cute. You sure did a lot of special details that really made it pop. I like the leaves so 3 dimensional. Of course, the owl is perfect and the 3 little mushrooms, too. I am jealous: your swap mate will be thrilled. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  3. I'm the lucky owner of this quilt:) It's even more beautiful in person. I LOVE it! Thank you for all your hard work.


Tell me something good! ;)
