Parliament of Owls

The family of Owls - a 'Parliament' - are finished. Now did you know that is what a
group of owls is called!

Once I had done the chunky hand quilting around the owls I decided the whole thing 
needed lots more quilting. 

I tried clouds up in the sky chunky quilted with ecru embroidery thread, but that did't cut
it so that was pulled out. Then it was off to the machine for some outline quilting - I like
that much better, with straight-ish lines across the bottom outlining the tree branch lines.

Now it is bound and ready to go to Auckland Festival of Quilts (Calico Christmas) in a few weeks.We will cut some kitsets to go with us during the week.

See you there November 2-4 at Albany's Rugby Stadium.
