This is a continuation of 2 previous posts about the making of the owl art quilt, ad the final one of "Hootie".
I decided to paint the owl since there were so many tiny little pieces in its breast feathers. The process was the same that I've used in previous quilts, which is basically a paint by number technique. I made sure to shade the outside edges of the owl to make it look more like it was in the shadow of the tree, and also shaded the tree itself. I also decided to add the moss around the hole, instead of just the left and right top.
The owl got a lightweight stuffing underneath it and the edges were glued to the backside.
The tree got two layers of batting underneath it to give the whole piece more depth and the moss was placed on the edges of the tree.
It was lightly quilted and bound with traditional binding to match the tree color. It measures 15-1/2" W x 20" H.
I hope you like it!
