I have three very beautiful nieces that live a long ways away from me.

They are my youngest nieces and I have not seen them in a long time.

I like to sew their names on the front of the quilt.
This avoids any confusion as to who's quilt is who's.
I know, I use to have small children.

{ The front of this quilt was a block I saw somewhere on blogland } .
And since I have made all family members a quilt all their own.

I need to get the quilts done for the girls.

The back is something I made up on my ironing board.

The back also has to use up some scraps.
No new matching fabric is allowed.

I love these cute little owls.
{Next week I will show you some pictures of a real Mama owl that is sitting on her eggs}.
I know Teegan will enjoy her quilt.
Now only one more to complete.....I have a good start on it :)

I love your quilt! I just can't decide if I like the front or back better. :) I really like how you put the names on the quilts. You have a really lucky niece.

Those owls are adorable and I love the name on the front. Always a big hit with kids, especially girls!

Nicole said...

How sweet! Love the back with those cute owls in the tree. And what a great idea to put their names on the quilts so there will be no confusion!
