I’ve started several new owls including the two robust grey fellows below. The owl on the left is made from a silvery Fortuny pattern and the other from marvelous Japanese textiles courtesy of Sri.
I have also gathered a little pile of things for another fabric ship and owl captain – a moodier pallet than the last – I love the purplish tones – those are for the ship and the indigos are for the little captain. These are all Japanese and again courtesy of Sri. These are the colors I’ve been most attracted to for weeks now – silver, stone shades, and bits of violets and blues
I finished the quilt ship but I haven’t taken it’s official photo yet, this is an instagram shot of the very nearly finished ship and captain.
I love all your work, but the owls “get” me every time!I think it’s their “don’t sass me!” look.
really like those colours you have chosen for your next ship and captain – perfect cooling shades for summer with hints of thinking about fall.
I LOVE all your work!
It’s fun to see the owls in progress, and the quilt ship and captain are GREAT! He is sure to reach his destination. 🙂
My aunt introduced me to your work, and I’m so glad! I love your fabric choices here, and the quilt ship is just wonderful!
I loved this post and seeing your owls come together. You’ve inspired my daughter to create her own sweet vintage fabric owls with button eyes. (very simple little owls but she is proud of them and we love them)
I look forward to seeing the silvery owl finished! Lovely shiny fabric.
Amo tutti i tuoi lavori!!!!<3
I loved this post and seeing your owls
I adore your patchwork ship and owls. What a wonderful needlewoman you are,
Love that silvery owl!
I love seeing the process photos of these owls. It’s really insightful to see an artist’s work in progress. I too show some of my art dolls as I create them. I think it’s fun for the readers.
The owl and the pussycat…..
