I did manage to work in a little red and yellow with the roofs, doors and windows. He likes it.
It stayed like this for a while. I think I was a little over-whelmed at this point. All that paper-piecing, you know.......Since most of the top was dark I had to order black batting, Quilter's Dream and wait for it to get here. Then it sat there, basted, for a while.
I finally realized that there was a slim chance Gavin might outgrow this one before I finish it. That's all I needed to get quilting -- motivation!!
I started in the middle with the BIG Centaur and just stippled.
And stippled some more.
I always think a little embroidery helps, so I added a little to the windows. The owls look better with eyes than without eyes, don't they?
Gavin is doing a great job with color selections, isn't he?
At this point the entire thing is quilted except for the black background areas, so there is hope that it will be done soon. Maybe even tomorrow???
