Sir Oswald is 18x15 inches. There is a sleeve on the back for hanging the quilt. I saw a segment of "Simply Quilts" where trapunto was demonstrated. I wanted to try it, and so the owl is stuffed with extra batting. The background is quilted within an inch of its life to make the owl stand out more. The owl was originally white - an albino owl! - but it did look too anemic, and I decided to paint it. I used acrylic paints, watered down. The orange flowers are silk flowers I fused to the background. The brown lines and centers in the flowers are brown magic marker. This was a fun little quilt to make! I named him Sir Oswald because I thought he looked a bit snooty.
