Lily loves owls and her favorite colors are green and purple so I used green flannel for the sashing and pieced her name in purple at the top. The quilt design is Colonnade, a pattern by my blogging friend Kim from Robot Mom Sews. (I made this quilt in a completely different color way last year. You can see it here.) The letters for Lily's name are from the Little Letters tutorials by the Temecula Quilt Company. I think they came out quite cute! My friend Terri Bearer quilted the quilt in an all over owl pantograph. Terri says that she hates me now and she'll never use that design again because it was very hard to do! Unfortunately you can't see her wonderful quilting in any of the photos, but take my word for it, it is simply adorable. My finished quilt measures 67x79.
I met Lily and her Dad Jeff for lunch last week and I gave Lily her Owl quilt. She was thrilled. Lily turns 6 tomorrow (we have almost the same birthday except I'm a few years older) and she is having an owl-themed birthday party this weekend. It is at the Blue Hills Trailside Museum so there will even be a real owl in attendance.

|Joannie made me this great quilt label. This cute flowered flannel is the backing fabric.|

|Of course, I also gave Lily another owl pillowcase. Who can resist leprechaun owls for Saint Patrick's Day?|
