This week I didn't spend much time at my sewing machine, so I thought I would share a project I did a few years ago, my son's nursery.

Baby J's Owl Quilt

This is the first quilt I made this year. It was a gift to my niece for her Baptism. I wanted to design something pink and girlie, but add some bold colors too. This owl fabric, which was found by my 18-month-old son (long story, see below), allowed me to do just that. You will probably notice that the fabrics match what I used in my studio last week. Though they are the same, the quilts that will be available for purchase are slightly different in design than this quilt. I believe, just like snowflakes, no two quilts should exactly be alike.

Week in Review - Pink Owls

What's been going on in the studio this past week? Well, it has been a week of pink, red, and teal owls. Here is a preview of the fabrics used. Though these quilts are sewn together, it will be a couple of weeks before they are quilted and for sale in my Etsy store.

The beginning...

Studio13Eleven is my design studio where I design, sew, and create custom projects. I will mostly focus on quilts, but will venture into other areas of sewing from time-to-time. By following my blog, you will get an inside look into what I am working on and a preview of what will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
