    prototype

    Hi everyone,
    I'm in for 2 sets of blocks and 2 twists. I made this block for a baby quilt I'm working on, I'm wondering if for this swap there should only be background without any border? Also, as to neutral backgrounds only, does that mean neutral colors, white beige grey black navy, or does it mean neutral pattern, such as tone on tone or a mottle?

    What a cute owl block. I like it with the little border and all and would love to get one just like it. I will post owl blocks I received in the monthly quilting bee block swap.

    These are 12 1/2 in. blocks I received. I thought i would post so people could see how different owl blocks look together applique, pieced and embrodery. The only one that I think has a busier back ground is the one pieced block in the left bottom corner but the fabric is stinking cute. In all blocks the owls stand out clearly. I might use some of these owl patterns.

    So dhanke just let your little owl fly right over to this flock. He will fit right in.

    Wow I love it and the borders are just fine. Don't change a thing send it right on over.
    I have the same owl fabric mentioned in the left corner above. I was going to put a border around six of them to use as a set.
    What are you doing with the flower part use in another quilt?

    owlvamp, that block was made by some one else for me and I plan to leave it just like it is with the flowers. I will probabaly mix some of the blocks from the monthly quilting bee swap with blocks from this swap and make 2 different quilts.

    I think your plans to use it as a center in a block would be a great idea. It is very cute!

    I love the owls in that block. And was thinking of using the flower blocks maybe to make a pillow or small lap quilt. But that's for another project for another day. I need to find some scraps and start making some owls. I deem of owls and more owls. LOL

    Talking

    quote-Now for the twist : you can send in 3 sets of six fabric squares total. This can be plain fabric with owls on them. It has to have owls On it. Size is to be no bigger than 6 1/2 inches. So either 3 1/2 or 6 1/2. 3 1/2 will be swapped with other 3 1/2 to keep it fair as well as the 6 1/2 inch squares. These will only be swapped out for other fabric squares and not with the original blocks. The catch to be qualified for the twist is you have to do at least one set of the original blocks. -quote

    Is anyone else having a hard time finding owl fabric? I really want to swap 61/2 in. fabric squares. Today after grocery shopping I found one owl fabric. Two more to go.

    I hope people are fussy cutting and making sure there is a complete owl within the finnished size of each fabric square. Nothing as anticlimatic as getting only feet and or rear ends.

    Joanns has lots of owls, Hancock and Beverly's both have a reasonable selection and Hobby Lobby also has a few. In case any of those are near you.

    I am blessed to live in owl rich territory... I believe I have around 30 different owl fabrics now and keep buying! Lol
