This quilt is for a dear friend who's expecting her first girl after four boys!
I made an applique owl on plain, thin, white cotton.
I wanted to keep the overall look of the quilt simple and uncluttered, so instead of all-over quilting or tying, I used my machine's eyelet stitch (one of my button hole options) to stitch simple circles at random intervals. They do the trick of keeping the quilt together, without overwhelming the general design.
Hope she likes it!
