otto the owl

Normally I take lots of pictures of my quilts, but this time, just the one says it owl... isn't he just glowing? I think he looks spectacular and I have to give credit to Boo Davis who published the pattern in his book "Dare to be square" - fabulous!
And it was lots of fun making it, too!

Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2011

This is my entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival 2011.
I called the quilt "Sonnenschein" (Sunshine) because it is so bright that even on a grey day it lights up the room. It is my first attempt to sew kind of a big wheel and , as usual, I tried to achieve several things at once: Using mainly scraps, trying to achieve a color wheel and trying the paper piecing technique.
I was amazed by the result and found my color combination skills have improved over the last year; the only thing I still struggle with is that when I paper piece and remove the paper, sometime the stitches are pulled apart a little.
Any tips to avoid this are welcome!
I hope you like!

Dies ist mein Block für Bee Europa 2011. Miriam hat sich einen Kunst-Quilt ausgesucht... ich bezweifle, das eine Künstlerin aus mir wirs. Aber Spaß hat es trotzdem gemacht.
