Bees and Owls

I made my Bee blocks for the Bees Knees group. I just
love the two blocks... they go together in one quilt. It
is going to be so cute. I might need to copy this idea and
make one for myself! 


I am not really one of those "inspired" quilt artists...
the ones that can make a quilt from a photo, an artist or a book
that they are inspired by.








Like this.

However, I did have a  tissue box that had these cute
owls on it...
and I didn't want to throw it away.
I decided to cut it up and make photo copies of the owls.

 
I think I will transfer the photos on to fabric and make a cloth story book
out of them. See the part that was the top of the box where the
tissue came out of? I thought I could use that... and make it kind of
interactive... the owls could go behind it and be in there tree house
to sleep. I might have to write a simple little  story to go with it.
What do you think?

That sounds like a wonderful idea, making the book, but one that I would not be so good at. I love the little doll. I am hoping to make dolls for my two granddaughters who will both turn 1 in May. I am using an old pattern and plan to update it a little with some fun new fabric clothes.

Love this idea. Love the owls. Now I will be on a quest to find a box of tissues with owls on the outside! (I have a friend who collects owls.)

Hey! I bought those same Kleenex boxes earlier this week (Randalls grocery store) and thought... this would make an interesting quilt project. I can't wait to see your idea come to life - I think it will be adorable!
