While at Quilts Canada, my sister in law Erica and I found this adorable owl pattern. A few days into the show, we decided to buy it and go owl crazy.
The most exciting part may have been getting to play with the Texture Magic. You layer the texture magic with fabric and batting and than quilt on it. I decided to do a grid pattern. The first one I drew out; for the second I winged it.
Than you quilt it.
Now the fun part; shrinking. The info on the texture magic said it would shrink up to 30%; we felt it didn't shrink as much as we had expected. Still it was pretty neat.
Than it was owl cutting time. Lots of cutting. Have to love Erica's eager helper.
Sadly, this was a far as we got before exhaustion kicked in. Hey, we worked hard at Quilts Canada! Erica said to leave the owls with her and she would finish them.
Than Tuesday, I got a package in the mail. Inside, two Annies
Erica did awesome. Look at what she accompished! Hoot and Annies for everyone!!
Hoot is the taller, skinner owl. Annie the other.
I love how many the pattern made. With a few extra fat quarters, Erica got all these done.
Erica sent something extra with my Annies.
Looks like I have some sewing to do ;)
