Yesterday "Brandie" emailed me a picture as inspiration for a quilt using the owl blocks I made for owl potholders.
(sorry I forgot your blog?)
Not sure where this quilt idea came from, but of course then I started in EQ7 and first had to create the owl blocks
I thought I could slice a circle in half, but couldn't figure that out, so I created a curve on the side, adjusted the curve and then drew a straight line down to close the shape, then copied it and flipped it.
added those as wings, the triangle beak was easy, there's a triangle shape you can add, then I added more circles for the eyes.
and here's the block
I decided on a 5 x 7 block layout, it looks like it's on point, but it's not :-)
here's the idea from above
Then I figured I'd color the owls the primary colors like the blocks
I then decided to do it square instead of a rectangle, then there's be 4 different owls.
Of COURSE I had to play with fabrics then and chose these from CT, now I can't remember the names, I think it was sweet rememberance, they are kind of matchy matchy, so I didn't care for these too much.
what about girly pastel colors? much better!
Here I made the borders smaller so it's less than 42" wide.
I then realized that the four patches above and below had to be switched.
I actually WANT to make this quilt.... it would be SO cute, and with 4 appliqued blocks that's like two sets of pot holders, so not too bad.
I don't think my circles on the blocks are totally perfect but I use the Go! cutter, so this is just to show. What do you think?
Again, if any of you want the EQ file, just email me I'd be glad to share it.
(can someone also tell me if you get the ROBOT message when you try to comment?)
