Do you love owls? We do and this is our newest quilt using these roly-poly owls all dressed up for winter and ready to play in the snow with you!
The quilt uses fabric from Clothworks Textiles. You can purchase the kit along with the pattern through Annie’s catalog. Be watching for it to appear in their paper and online editions. Annie’s will also be offering a second colorway using navy/silver dot fabric in place of the aqua tonal. The fabric in the center of the pieced snowflake blocks and hat and mittens is also replaced.
The size is 46″ x 55″-just right to cover your lap or shoulders on cold, winter days. The pattern, of course, is also available on our catalog page or one of our pattern distributors like QuiltWoman, Annie’s Catalog, or e-patterns from Craftsy, The Quilt Pattern Quilt Shoppe, You Can Make This, Connecting Threads, Pink Castle Fabrics, and Pattern Spot.

One of our patterns has just been published in The Quilt Pattern Magazine (www.quiltpatternmagazine.com).
The quilt has fabric from Clothworks Textiles and uses their colorful tonals for the caterpillars.
I gave this quilt to my great nephew, Preston, just 1 year old, and he loves to stroke the caterpillars! His mom has hung it above his crib where he can reach it.
The Quilt Pattern Magazine is an online magazine. You can find them in the web address above.

With our blog up and running again, its good to say hello to all our readers! Technology caught up with our blog and a new one had to be installed which meant losing all our old posts from years ago. But we now have a fresh page to start again!
We have been busy in the sewing room with new patterns up on our homepage for you to see. Our newest baby quilt, Woodland Babies, is fun to create and give away. I made it for our second granddaughter.
This shows the boy version. The quilt I made for the baby coming has a pink border and pink owl. Illustrations and yardage are in the pattern for the boy or girl version.
