I finished quilting the "owlie" quilt today. It's a sorority quilt for Daughter 2 to give to a friend who will be graduating this Spring. This was a fairly quick quilt, though I did put lots of hours into in over the weekend.
Here's a close up of how I did the Greek letters. They are simply fused. During the quilting process, I quilted around the edge of each letter, killing two birds (owls?) which one stone.
Here's the stripe which is the backing and will also be the binding. For Alathia - this fabric (all three pieces) are from the "Forest Fun" line designed by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman. Owls are one of Chi Omega's symbols, so I HAD to use an owlie fabric!
