This Big Sister was made by Caroline Dillabough. She bought this pattern several years ago to make for her new grandson’s room. Her method of construction is explained as follows: “I didn’t trim the applique pieces and I butted them tight together. Then I covered the joins with 1/2″ bias tape, making sure that all cut ends tucked under the strips where they joined.” Caroline also added, “I absolutely LOVED making this one. It is a gorgeous pattern. I’ve moved a couple times, since I made it, and I managed to lose the pattern, so I have re-ordered it.” (I like that! ~Anita)
Just wanted to share the result of our class this weekend. It’s not stitched yet, but here’s one student’s version that’s fused. Striking!
Thanks for a great pattern!!! I made this for my Mom who loves owls.Â Â ~ Deborah Tisa

My name is Denise Lockwood and I made one of your patterns called â€śLittle Sisterâ€ť. I would like to donate this to a local charity called Rainbow of Hope. This charity raises money for our local Hospice. I made it in pinks to represent breast cancer.
The big sister pattern I am keeping. ~ Denise Lockwood
My sister-in-law saw the owl I made for my granddaughter and wanted one for her granddaughter for Christmas. She likes blue and green. He turned out pretty cute. ~Laura Arnold
Instead of sewing around the pieces, I covered her in black illusion and had [my quilter] quilt through to secure the pieces. ~ Mary Beth Beene
What an excellent idea! And, this technique could be used on any of my designs! By the way, I LOVE this quilt! ~ Anita
I love, love, love the pattern. I made this one last night. I know with practice I will be able to make them just a perfect as yours! ~ Susie Duplantis
