Nicolette van der Poel, from Holland: Owl
I love your work and I bought a book, Stained glass patchwork techniques birds … and I made the owl. In Holland we have Quilts of Love, where you can make a quilt and donate it to an organization and they give it to parents, who’s baby is stillborn, or will die soon. And the baby will lay in the quilt and not in a hospital blanket. The parents can take the quilt home with them, or they bury their baby in it. But the stained glass was too black for me, so I did not use that and I also changed the beak of the owl. I am proud of my work. I have only been quilting now for 2 years and I wanted to show you my creation.
