    I will be making a set of pieced owls similar to the one on post 22 and a set of appliqued silhouetted owls. I won't be making the ones on post 40. I agree with Annaquilts though. We could all be using the same pattern and we would still have a nice variety due to color and fabric choices.

    I agree never thought about that. Okay I will Finish them up and post them. I love seeing the blocks. Keep them coming. I have all the pieces cut out for the one on post 40. I also found 2 other patterns I purchase months ago so will make some of those too.

    I found a few pieces of owl fabric I forgot I had so that is good. Have a few ideas on some blocks. Need to sew the binding of two quilts and then will,finish up the owl blocks and post.

    How is it going with you all?

    Half way sewing down the sets of owl. I did all aplique. I still have to square them up after that and cut fabric squares for the twist.

    silhouette owls

    Here's one set completed. I hope the background colors aren't too wild, but I wanted to use batiks to look like sky in the background.

    dhanke I really like the effect the batik has. the owls stand out in front of a stunning sunset. Very nice and a clever artistic interpetation.

    silhouette owls are stunning. I love the background too! Did you cut the owl out by hand? I really like those.

    Oh good, i'm glad the batik is OK. The silhouette is cut by hand, fused and satin stitched. I made all six on sunday, so they are fairly quick and easy.

    I would love prison owl with his black and white stripes. Are you planning to add pupils? The snow picture cracked me up. Enjoy watching the kids play in the snow in that recliner? Brrrrrrr......Hahahahaha I bet the kids have a lot of fun playing outside.

    I wouldn't want to sit in it either with all that snow and more to come... I'm with you I will sit inside and watch it fall plus at least I can cuddle under a quilt or two.

    I found one fabric and will be hunting for more. To be in the twist you do not need more thern a FQ or 1/4 yard cut. Just think of all the cute squares you'll get bacvk and the great variety. But I understand. You sure the dog would sit in that snow covered chair? I think the dog says you can have your chair back. Too funny. I just thought it was hilarious how it is standing in the middle of the snow. Eye glasses sound really cute. I still hope I get Mr. Prison out break owl.

    I have my 3 for the twist. Mine are 4 inches though. I must of cut them for something else i was going to do and guess i didn't use them so now i will .Do you all want me to cut it down to the 3 1/2 inch block or leave and you,have a little extra to deal with? Let me know okay and will fix them if I need to.

    I believe the cats and dogs are knocking on your door to come inside. They say its to chilly out there. I would be freezing. I would be an icicle and you,would have to thaw me. Burr it's cold out there.

    Love the owl blocks.
    The snow looks like a lot of fun and cold. Love the snowman. My grandson made about a seven inch snowman out of snow and sense our snow stays for one day and gone the next he brought his snowman in and ask if he could save it in the freezer. LOL it's still in there. I'll get my daughter to take a picture for me to post. So I am saving his snowman in my freezer. It makes him happy therefore I am happy.
