Little Hooters

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • cotton fabrics
  • batting
  • basic sewing supplies

okay I have searched for baby quilt to make my youngest daughters new baby quilt. My first grandchild, probably my only and its got to be great. Where did you get the pattern. This is adorable. I need something pieced. She is a wash it freak.
Karen Louise answered:
I found the pattern in a magazine I bought at a yard sale. It was in a big box of misc sewing stuff. Magazine was Quilt Craft, Oct 1994. I'm sure it is out of print. Thanks for your kind comments.
