Edited 4th August 2014: I am soooo, so very sorry, I thought this post had already gone up...and it was indeed scheduled for publishing on 18th July, but for some reason it didn't post.....with all that went on with the blog 'adjustments' I'm still trying to fine tune a few things, so I've been having a look here and there, and I found this in my draft folder....oh well, I'll publish it now so you can see the hooty quilt, finally!!
I've just spent the last couple of hours trying to find more details about a quilt pattern I tested for someone...I know we were corresponding through my Gmail account, and I normally save 'special' emails into folders, but for the life of me, I can't find any from her to me or me to her anywhere in my Gmail.
I can however let you know that I first had contact with her a couple of years ago, and then her life got in the way and I didn't hear back from her regarding the test pattern again, until I think it was either late last year or early this year.....I'm going to go with early this year, because then I don't feel so bad at only sharing the pics of the quilt now.
As you may all know, I kind of have a soft spot for owls..well derr lol So it was a no brainer when Sue Lynn contacted me to see if I was still interested in testing the pattern for her. Here's the link to her blog, where you can keep updated with any future patterns she releases....now with disclosure in mind, I must tell you, that her owl quilt pattern is actually needleturned, which I didn't do....yet, but will be, however I did thoroughly read her pattern, and could follow it along, and found no errors.
Yes, yes, I know, stop waffling Naomi and just show us the pics!
Aussie Hero, to thank her for her time away from home. Below are a few close ups of the owl blocks. The quilt request was for owls and pastels....I think I nailed it didn't I? I must've, because I received a lovely email saying how much the quilt meant to the new owner....R! (Name withheld for privacy reasons)
AHQ by Berri Uniting Church, and it works great as backing, even though its a bit too pretty really!
