    Default Panel quilt for my niece's baby - pic heavy

    This quilt is just a little flannel panel from JoAnn's. The satin-stitching around the owls was already there. All I did was quilt: outline stitched around owls, tree, and large leaves. Then I added the lines in the tree trunk with my even-feed (walking) foot, and did some very wonky fmq'ing around the little leaf groups at the bottom. I made a plastic leaf-shape template and traced around it for the inner (brown) border, and followed the lines on the outer border.

    I didn't find out until I got the fabric home why it was on clearance: there was a rip in the outer border. I used some fusible interface on the back, and used one of my decorative stitches to hold it together. Not thrilled, but it's actually almost not noticeable in person.

    It is adorable!
    If you are concerned about the "fix" maybe cutting out a leaf or two, fuse them toward and over the fixes and machine stitch the top one first. Make the back one a little bigger and maybe turn it into a label and hand stitch that one in place. Might be a bit tricky to get two lined up exactly over the tear on each side.

    Cute. The extra textures that you quilted really make it pop. And, your tear/fix is not noticeable.
