Kaylee's Owl Cushion

Over the weekend I found time to make this cushion for a little 3 year old girl who is fighting ( and winning !) cancer.   She is the great grandaughter of my friend Miriam who lives in America.


It all started with this fabric, which Miriam had sent me quite a while ago...


Cute eh?


I drew my version onto card and used this to work the applique from.



Then I added Kaylee's name, a few borders and it was tme to quilt.

I kept the quilting simple - a bit of stippling behind the owl and stitching in the ditch with invisible thread.



For the back I used this cute lime green owl fabric - I love purples and greens together.


A little ruffled edging finishes the cushion nicely and it is all ready to be posted.

Today I'm linking up with Connie's excellent blog, Quilting by the River for her linky party. 
Back to quilting the butterfly quilt for me today - nearly at the outer border!!!!
See you all again soon.

The pillow is so pretty! I love your choice of fabrics and your rendition of the owl. You will make a child happy (and, hopefully, make her stronger!).
