    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

    Take a look at Hancocks or Joanns, I could probably pick some up for you and save you some shipping...

    I'm almost home bound due to my illnesses and all I do is order online. JoAnn's and Hancocks are both online, and many more that are less expensive than the LQS.

    True golden dog but right now I am not ordering much and I just wanted enough to do the swap. Often one can find better deals online too. Let me see what I can find at Joanns.

    Go to fabricdepot.com. They let you buy fabrics by the 1/8 yard, with no minimum. Their fabrics are always 25% off the listed price, and sometimes, more.

    Yes the 3 1/2 inch blocks will be swapped with 3 1/2 inch blocks. That way it is fair as well as the 6. 1/2 blocks for 6 1/2. I have some owl fabric for my daughter loves owls and I have been collecting as I go and decided to do the swap. But 30 different fabrics. WOW I would love to see them all.

    another owl block

    Hi all,
    I just made this owl block for another quiltalong, My Favorite Block, @ www.persimondreams.com. Coincidentally, I had just made this block as a potholder during the superbowl, now my potholder has a little sister!

    Working on designing and fusing my last set of owls. Then I have to sew them all down. It looks like all sets will be applique. I think they are turning out really cute. Sofar 4 sets of 12 1/2 in. and one set of 9 1/2 in. blocks. currently I have no working camera so I will leave you all in suspense. How many people are signed up sofar?

    Dhanke, I think that design is very cute and I especially like the colors of the potholder version. I thought about doing that design but since you are I will make another one. Variety is the spice of life I figure. what is everyone else making? It is so quiet.

    I have another set of blocks cut out but I think dhanke is doing something similar. So I will see what she does and decide whether I will start a different set.
    dhanke are you making the blocks like you posted?

    As for how many people I believe so far we have 9. I will get the list together and how many sets each is doing over the week end. Still lots of time for anyone else who wants join. Lets get this hopping.

    Pictures of owl blocks

    Here are pictures of the owl blocks for the swap. They still need to be sewn down and then trimmed down to the right size. I hope you like them.

    Thank you owlvamp but please do not stop making them just because I used a similar pattern. You will use different fabrics. After all we are all doing owls. Maybe just changing the fabrics and or small changes like a belly or gogles can give an entirely different feel.
