hoot owls published in 1994 quilt craft magazine
InstructionsThis was fun, but took more time than I had anticipated, probably because I added all the additional quilting.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Whimsical, Cute
cotton fabrics, batting, basic sewing supplies
What was your inspiration?
I saw this 10 plus year old magazine at a yard sale with the picture of this wall hanging on the front cover. Bought it because I thought it was cute with plans to make it someday. Now a couple of years later, I have.
What are you most proud of?
The quilt as shown on the magazine cover has only quilting in the ditch around the basic items. I added loopy free motion quilting to the background, zig-zag quilting to the owl bodies to give them feathers, bark to the tree trunks and leave design to the border.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is a pieced pattern using templates printed in the magazine Quilt Craft , October 1994.
