This is the front of quilt four of my 10 quilts to December challenge.  Its for a friend who is getting married. She loves owls and I added some of her engagement photos.  This is the only photo I have as I worked on it in record time but still had it on the machine the morning of her bridal shower. I barely had time to shower and dress so definitely no time for photos at home....I had to take a quick one at the shower.  This quilt has a back that's pretty cool but I can't figure out how to post the picture without this pic going away.  I know it can be done. She really loved it. What I loved was the shower was huge, maybe 60 people were there and when she pulled this quilt out of the bag there was a loud "oohhhh" from the guests, followed by an even louder "awwwe" when she flipped it around to see both sides were pretty.  I was feeling pretty proud! I saw this image as a tattoo somewhere and thought this would make a cute quilt.  Next time I will avoid so many leaves in my design...lol. Those suckers made me almost hate this quilt as I approached completion. Have you guys ever had that happen? You're so sick of looking at it you kind of hate it?  All you see are the mistakes you covered up and it becomes super easy to just give it away? People have often asked me how I can give my quilts up so easily and I say..."if you only knew"...lol.  Now off to complete a UFO for quilt number 5 to show off. This next one is for DH so I'll be keeping it.
