A very special baby is entering my life in April....my first grandchild! (You might have seen his ultrasound picture a while back....) I had been wanting to use Ty Livingston's designs in a baby quilt forever, but somehow never got it done. After a lot of fussing around, this is what I ended up with. After it is quilted by my friend, Sylvia Gauthier, I will add a binding made out of my colored scraps. After Parker is born, he will go home to his house along the Rock River in the woods!

PS This went together very fast if you don't count the two pieced borders I didn't use! I will be posting instructions for the quilt very soon, and we will be making fabric kits....

Here is the finished owl quilt top. Finally! Isn't the border fabric perfect? It is from a Nancy Davis Murty collection from a couple of years ago. I'm so glad we still had some in the shop!
