Owls have been a very popular motif in quilting and other crafts for quite a while now. They are such cute little creatures that it only makes sense that they end up on everything from quilts to coasters, clothing to bags and any gift item imaginable. Bluprint has no shortage of owl quilt patterns to serve as inspiration for your next project!

No matter which technique you prefer, which tools you use or the adorable item you want to make, there is sure to be an owl waiting to be added. We see even more owls popping up than usual during Halloween season, but owls make cute companions to any craft twelve months out of the year!

Isn’t this little book bag a hoot? What child wouldn’t be excited to carry this to the library? Diane made this after taking the Bluprint class Fun With Fusible Appliqué and posted it to the gallery. Personally, I think the beaded necklace makes all the difference!

If it’s a Halloween project you are looking for, this little guy would be perfect on a pillow, tea towel, treat bag or a mug rug. His nest of autumn leaves and his sly little wink make you wonder what he’s really thinking! One little owl may be all you need to get your fix, but if you are looking for a larger project, there’s plenty of those options too!

Each of these little owls has their very own Halloween costume. They are ready for a spooky good time! The creativity, fabric choices and embellishments could really make this quilt fun to personalize. Perhaps you could dress the owls up to match your kids’ favorite Halloween costumes or you could choose different fabrics to make a spookier version. I’m not sure how scary this quilt could be but that bat owl really cracks me up!

For those that take the Halloween season a bit more seriously, this is good option for making a frightfully fun owl. This little guy could look good on almost any project, or would be an amazing quilt if made up in different color combinations. It’s large enough to make a good size pillow on its own, or a wall hanging with some borders added.
