Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Hop

Whooos on the cover! What’s on the cover? No. Whooo! LOL. Reminds me of the old Abbott and Costello skit….geez if that isn’t “dating” myself. LOL

When my copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 magazine arrived I was sooo excited to see my Whooo block on the cover. I’m still doing the funky, happy dance.

If you’re new to my blog…welcome!

For today’s hop I thought I’d do something a bit different. Let’s have some fun using the block in various settings.

Whooo says your owl has to be brown? It looks great in unexpected colors too. I love using the stomach to show off fun fabric prints.

Whooo7

Maybe a woodsy feeling Whooo quilt is what you need.

Whooo2

Or place a set of owls on a branch for a sweet table runner.

Whooo3

Try flipping the branches around for a whimsical baby blanket.

Whooo1

I got together with a few of my friends and we did a virtual round robin using a picture of the Whooo block for the center. Isn’t this a fun little quilt!

I’d love to see the things you make using the block so do stop back and share.

    Love your Whooo block. I especially like the setting of two owls on the tree branch.

    Nice job on your post today! Here's a true story about your block: I write the patterns for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, and I helped create the index of blocks at the back of the issue. When I proofed the index, I had to actually count the number of O's in "Whooo?"--and I found that a few O's were missing! In the end, we got it right and your block is a winner. Thanks for being with us on the blog tour. Have a great week!

    Your Whooo block is adorable and the quilts and table runner are so cute! I think it would be fun to use it with some other animal blocks for a baby quilt. Thanks for a chance to win.

    How cute those owls are, I'm imagining solid color owls, in a quilt - with one is a vibrant print and the other owls eyes all staring at him! You got my creative juices flowing....

    Your owl is adorable and the block makes into a sweet quilt. I do love owls and waiting in eager anticipation for a burrowing owl that shows up yearly near our neighborhood. It would be fun to make a quilt in his (or her?) honor.
    Thank you for joining in on the designing and for the sweet giveaway!

    I love the owl love birds on the table runner! This would be adorable for something smaller too, such as a potholder -- but pretty fussy applique.
