Applique Owl Baby Quilt

I made this adorable baby quilt with applique owls and the word love across the front. It is made using Moda's Ruby fabrics. I straight line quilted across about every 1/4 inch. This is the first time that I have used straight line quilting and I absolutely love the way it turned out even though it took forever! I still have to hand stitch a binding on and wash it with a color catcher to make sure none of the fabrics will run. I pieced the backing which I must say ties it in to the front quite nicely! Next up for quilting is another applique quilt that I has been in my pile of UFO's. Time to get busy getting some of them done!
