OWL LOVE!! <3 <3 <3 :o)
I mentioned, just yesterday, that I had plans for an owl quilt... Well, today I was so excited about it I couldn't hardly focus on anything else. I had to make at least one block just to see if the vision of my owl was going to manifest itself correctly onto my quilt. It did just that!! Yay!!! :o) The rest are all going to be just a little different. Stay tuned to see the whole quilt come together!!
Well, I was so disappointed with how my first Wild West Quilt turned out I HAD to make it again! That's just how I am. I do the same thing when I'm cooking or baking, I throw it away and start over if I'm not satisfied. I guess it's the perfectionist in me. Not sure if it' a good thing or bad thing.... it just is what it is.
Well, I didn't throw my first Wild West quilt away....it will definitely be put to good use. A great car and picnic blanket! On my first attempt I experimented with using different material and pre-shrinking it thinking it would work. NOPE! FAIL! That's okay....that's how we learn. Especially me, I'm usually all about trial and error. My second attempt, I used all homespun and used a dark brown for the animals. I liked the black fabric on my first quilt just fine but thought the dark brown would go well with the other material I chose for this one. I haven't washed and dried it yet but I have high hopes that I will be a lot happier with my second attempt. I almost have the pattern/instructions ready for a trial run for my sis-in-law then will make it available for anyone who is interested. And will for sure work on this dang cute owl quilt pattern! :o)

Just because your life doesn't always go the way you expected or had planned, doesn't mean your life is going the way it's supposed to.
Love the life you live!
