Little Owl Pillow

I'm working on something for someone special.
Someone who loves owls
It's made with 5 fat quarters
and one 14 x 14 pillow form
I hope she doesn't read the blog!

There is a free pattern
at Fat Quarter Shop 
It's super easy and requires no quilting
The on line version has a chicken theme
so chicken lovers, take a look. 
There are LOTS of free patterns here for downloading.

This is one of the two
but I have to add the pillow
and sew the bottom
I like the little owls center piece better,
this one with the larger owls looks
a little out of balance.
They don't line up straight.

I used the center block as the backing
so she can turn it around and have 
something different if she wants to 

I didn't have another fat quarter of the owl pattern
to complete the backing,
so I stopped at the quilt shop in Eureka.
She had 1 fat quarter left.
No yardage left at all.
Lucky me!

I sort of picked up some other things too.
You knew I would!
More on that tomorrow.
