Abbey's First Quilt

It's a humble first effort but after a year of dreaming of quilting, this proved to be a welcome ice breaker.  It's a hug to a member of an online group of friends who met through The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson & Ricky Timms.  This sweet woman has had several months' struggle with illness.  We each made a block in the theme of welcoming the family farm she recently acquired.  I made the block toward the center that's supposed to look like a chainsaw blade which she recently purchased.  When the front & back was designed & assembled by Jan, the originator of the project, it came to me to quilt, bind & send to our friend in Norway. I like the owl block because he looks so cute with the design I quilted showing on his belly!
