Twisted Wreath Update

The borders went on the Twisted Wreath this afternoon.  I enjoyed making it and will probably make another when the new Christmas fabric comes in.  Now I just have to figure out how I want to quilt it.

Remember the reverse applique bird from earlier in the month?

One of my friends asked if I could make an owl or a pelican.  Well .... it seems like everyone is making owls these days, so I'm making a pelican.  I string pieced another under-layer and worked on drawing a pelican silhouette.  I found some ideas on Google images to get me started, then drew my own.  This was about the 3rd or 4th try.  I like it now.

Here's the top layer added to the pile.  I will baste around the entire outline 1/4" out from the drawn line and then begin the applique process.
