Wanna Play?

It's been over two years since I received these cute bunch of owls. They were part of a exchange, Mary Lou Weidman invited me to be a part of, after taking a class from her. I was thrilled.
Growing up my dad used to read me PD Eastman's Sam and the Firefly. As I got older I read it to him. Then when I became a mother I read it to my kids until they could read it to me. Memories of this book fit perfectly with my flamboyant flock. So I started making words. 
 Finally I filled in all the blank space with my background fabric. I was a little worried I would run out. But miraculously I had enough. Though I'll be looking for a close match for the binding.
I'm leaving for Panguitch Quilt Walk today. If memory serves me there will be a vendor there that has lots of batiks and will most likely have a good match. Crossing my fingers and toes I'm right. 'Cause I'm pretty stoked to finish this cute baby quilt.

  9. Darn those owls are so cute! Hope you can find (or have found) some binding to go with them.) But have you thought of using LIME green? It would really add a zing. Also, how'd you make your letters? Curious me wants to know.
