Owl Quilt for Baby Johanna

Finished the owl quilt yesterday for baby Johanna. She’s due in September and the baby shower was yesterday. I finished the quilt at 9am and the shower was at 11am, so it was a tight squeeze. But I was so pleased with it. The embroidery designs (all but one which was my design) were from DesignsbyJuJu.com owl sets 1 and 2. The flowers are my Accuquilt GO! fun flowers and I used the design that was digitized with the free-form applique embroidery edge. I quilted edge to edge with the Double Bubble Panto from Urban Elementz.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. This quilt is absolutely adorable. I love the applique stitches on the flowers and the quilting looks great. The owls are a hoot (I can’t believe I just typed that). I have never used Designs by JuJu. I will definitely have to check themn out.

  2. This turned out so lovely. I’m sure it was a big hit at the shower!! And will be given lot of good use in the very near future.

    1. Thanks for your reply back. I’m making twin boys quilts and I have some applique and machine embroidery and I was wondering how that would work. Love your work and projects.

  3. Ohmy, wonderful. Are these your own creation? Will you have embroidery designs for these? Very lucky baby to have such a taleted grandma.

  4. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I don’t think this quilt could be any cuter. The owls, quilting and backing are all just absolutely darling. What a perfect gift Marjorie. Another superb job by you.

  5. Thanks for mentioning Designs by JuJu! Just checked out her site and bought 8 sets for $18 – can’t beat a special like that. Your quilt is completely adorable!
