Hexagon Cushion and February Owl

I have managed to finish both my scrappy cushion and my February owl. The cushion was made with scraps from my kit for In Full Bloom plus a couple of pieces from some yardage that I have for another project. I played around with the embroidery stitches on my sewing machine while quilting around the hexagons and the rectangles in the borders. The background of the hexagons I just quilted with straight lines.

I'm really pleased with the results. I have a few more scraps to play with at some point but not sure what I will do with those yet – they're quite small.

February's owl was a delight to stitch. The backstitch really makes these little birds come to life…

I had forgotten what a fun stitch this is. I'm looking forward to the March owl now. The chart is Outrageous Owls by Glendon Place.

Planning to do some more quilting this month – Catherine keeps drawing my attention to her unquilted 'blanket' so I think that may skip to the top of the pile!
