For The Birds Blog Hop Challenge Starts Today, My Day


Today is my day for the start of the For The Birds Blog Hop Challenge, hosted by the fabulous Joan  @MooseStash Quilting.  

The Challenge:  Angry birds, crazy birds, whimsical birds or flying geese.  If its a bird, this is their time to show their colors.  

For this challenge, I had planned to make a lap quilt for my daughter Katie for her birthday.  I had an owl panel I planned to use.   Katie loves owls.  Several weeks ago Katie came to my quilt guild's show and saw a different owl quilt made from a panel that she just kept telling me how much she loved.  While I was working at the quilt show I went ahead and ordered this other owl panel and finished the top.

I'll get this quilted before her August Birthday.  

Be sure and visit the other bloggers below.  And thanks again to Joan for another great challenge!
