It's a thread painted blue and purple baby owl!

I knew right away when the Project Quilting Challenge was announced, what I wanted to do. We were to be inspired by thread. I want to thread paint on raw edge applique'.

But I didn't know what I wanted to create.  Then I saw Linda's watercolour that she shared on instagram.  You can find Linda at linlovespaper on Instagram.

Linda was inspired by Kelly of cookstah on Instagram.

I was inspired by both Linda and Kelly to create my little thread painted baby owl.  I named it Blueberry! 

Here's the backside of the quilt.

These are all the thread colors I used for my thread painted baby owl.

Here's how I made my raw edge applique' pieces for thread painting.

I used a fine point sharpie marker to draw the lines so I would know where to stitch when I started quilting --- thread painting on the raw edge applique'.

I am linking it up over at Persimon Dreams for Season 7 Challenge 3 of the Project Quilting Challenges.

This is so cute! I liked that you shared the process of making it too. I am working on my challenge quilt now, and am also using a large number of threads to make it.
