Design Wall Monday

I sewed this week!
Not a bunch but I sewed and accomplished something.
This is block 2 for Fun On the Farm by Eleanor Burns.
I love Dresden plates!
I loved doing free motion applique on the leaves and stems. 
Now I want to do a project with lots of free motion applique!
Oh dear, is that a squirrel I see?

This is called Mini Birds.
This is a free tutorial and download by Connie Kresin Campbell
Connie has lots of great tutorials.
I love matchstick quilting on small quilts.
I have several of these kitted up ready to sew.

Then a cute little 6 years old asks
"Gramma can you make me this owl? I got a book for you."
Of course I can.
So Mr. Owl became my focus.
And he's so cute. 
I can't wait to give it to him tomorrow.

See what others are working on at

The Dresden Susans are so appealing! Will you make more blocks like that, or a variety sampler?

Suzanne said...

Your block and your owl are wonderful!

Each is a wonderful item in itself, but that owl! Adorable!!

Cute items! I love your projects. I also love free motion applique. It is evidenced in my Baltimore quilt.

Oh, I love all three of your projects! But how can you resist when a special someone asks you to make a cute little something?!

Grandma's can make almost anything... the faith of a child. Owl is very cute!
I love your Dresden flowers.
