Finally... as Promised

So, in a couple of my previous posts I mentioned a homemade Christmas gift that I couldn't quite share with you yet until after Christmas. Well, here it is a couple months after and I'm finally putting this post up. My sis-in-law Becca has had this thing for owls for a while now. So when I saw this pattern on the Internet I immediately knew I wanted to make it for her for Christmas.
I appliqued the owl by hand, it was the first time I had ever done this stitch, and I love it. It was fun, and fast, very easy to do.

 However, I did not even attempt to quilt this one myself. ( or it might have been a couple more Christmases before Becca actually got it) I had it machine quilted and I think they did a very nice job.

If your interested, the name of this pattern is "Remember Whoo Loves You" because of the story behind it. The pattern also comes with the option to embroider the title under the owl. I don't remember which website I ordered it off of, but several links come up if you google it.
