This small quilt (16" x 20") jumped into my mind a few weeks ago. The front is completely free-motion stitched. The little saw-whet owl is thread painted and all the pine needles are thread sketching. The moon is composed of angelina fibers.
After searching for a good background, I came upon my last piece of fabric that I bought from Ellen Anne Eddy six years ago. And it was perfect. Then I looked back through my gallery of quilts and realized my favorite work had been done with her fabrics as background. So I am now watching daily for a new box containing many yards of her fabric. I feel like a kid waiting for her first bicycle!
I'm on my way to Waverly House Gallery to take this latest work. I may have to make another for myself because I'm very fond of it.
