Of Flowers and Owls

This week I continued to follow along with Helen Godden’s Flower Power Quilt-A-Long. Here are the blocks.

Cone Flower, Block 5

Fuchsia, Block 6

Chocolate Lily, Block 7

Iris, Block 8

And the final block, Sunflower, Block 9. I plan on attaching them by the Quilt-As-You-Go method using Pauline Roger’s book.

I did a few more blocks on the Curve It Up quilt. Here is a sneak peek.

I’ve got to keep moving on this quilt. My One Monthly Goal for April is to finish quilting the blocks!

Hubs and I have been watching 2 Great Horned Owlets in a park near us. My son & DIL spotted 2 adult owls back in March. We all got curious and started looking for a nest. Hubs spotted a dead tree that would make a great place for an owl to nest. He was right!

Here you see one of the owlets in the nest.

Last week the 2 Great Horned Owlets flew up into a tree above their nest! One parent was in a near by tree! Photos taken with my cell phone through a spotting scope. So, not the best. But I’m super excited to share these with you!

Last To-Do List:

  1. Quilt Curve It Up – this was my goal for April. I better get going on it! ✔️
  2. Keep up with Helen Godden’s Flower Power Quilt-a-long. ✔️

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Finish quilting blocks on Curve It Up quilt
  2. Figure out how to stitch together Flower Power blocks quilt-as-you-go style

    Love those fabrics with the flowers , is there a way I can download the patterns apart from Facebook, as I don’t have an account there now, when I started with my new Macbook they wanted so many personal details, birth certificate, etc, I felt it was so invasive. The owls and the babies, beautiful, and we all need a boost from nature and the safety it has right now.

    Hi Sharon! Oooh, that owl has a scary look – like he knew you were spying on the babies. I love seeing the young owlets in the tree! Thanks for sharing these pictures with us. Your quilting looks fab! I haven’t tried doing pebbles/stones/circles as you show. They look fab and the thread color is a great choice. Boy, that quilt-along went by quickly. I missed the last few episodes – I’ll have to check them out. Watching someone quilt is so mesmerizing. Thanks for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne
