September 2020

Here’s my blue version from Jacquelynne Steves Silver Linings SAL (sew along) that I participated in during the Spring. Like my pink version, Aurora, I stitched an owl to work with my overall owl theme. But instead of embroidering the owl this time, I did it as cross-stitch, since I’m much more familiar with cross stitching — much fewer stitches to know/learn than embroidery 🙂

I used scraps for all the blocks, and fabric from my stash for the sashing, cornerstones and binding. The blocks are 6″ and since the SAL only had twelve blocks, plus six embroidery blocks that I chose not to do, I pieced extra blocks to make the finished size 40″x46″ so it can work for a baby or young child.

This was donated to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services for a child in foster care in October 2020.
