Thank you, Cherri!

Awhile back, I entered a draw for a giveaway on Cherri's blog.
I actually won!  Okay, I milked it for all it was worth.  It was getting to the point where I believe  I'd never win a thing!  LOL.   But seeing these colours together and the cute owls, I just imagine the coolest little sleepover set for a wee one.   So, instead of saying I'd make a quilt and bag...I detailed everything!  Here was my comment:

I would make a "night owl" sleepover set.   I'd need a little extra dark brown chenille for it...but here goes my idea>  I'd make a nightowl backpack/messenger bag style made of dark brown chenille with flap pockets made with the coordinating owl fabrics.  The straps would be done in the solids.  The main flap would also be done in the coordinating owls.  Inside would be a night owl quilt - a cozy soft quilt made of all the fabrics -and backed by a cozy soft chenille or minky in the matching chocolate brown colour.  If I can swing it, it would probably be quillow style, folds into itself.   The night owls would be watchers for the sleepover, just incase the wee one is a little anxious, nervous or worried about the sleepover.  Kind of a security comfort blanket...but the owls are night watchers and can 'watch out' for the scary things like new noises, new shadows, etc. because of course, owls are nocturnal and stay up all night so you don't have to.   Of course, with my night owl kit would come a coordinating comforting night owl stuffie made by me, that would tuck into one of the pockets of the backpack.    
And as this idea came to fruition...yes, i would totally design and make this to show off if I won it!  What a fun project to do ;-)

I thought it was a cool idea, and so did Cherri.  So, thank you so much Cherri... and YES I will be making this!  Oh my gosh, another for the list.     By the way, have you seen Cherri's quilt patterns?  I want to make every single one of her patterns.  In the solids, of course. Because that's what I really really love.
