Windham Wednesdays with It's a Hoot

Do you like owls? Of course, you hooooooot - I mean, of course you do!

While I designed this pattern for Windham Fabrics 4 years ago, I didn't feature it in a blog post other than an afterthought. This little pattern is a perfect project for an upcoming baby. First, let's see the fabrics. Yes, you may not have these exact fabrics, but the pattern will work with just about any collection with primary colors.

And, remember, I shared those cute little tissue holders I made with these cute owl prints.

You can make just 3 blocks and stagger them as shown here. The owl blocks are 12" x 12" finished. When the 2" squares are added, they are now 12" x 16" and can be staggered up and down.

And here's the full quilt and FREE pattern.

What a Hoot! quilt: 54" x 66"

When I've made this owl in another collection, my go-to method is raw edge appliqué. Let me show you that cute owl pillow I made in 2012. Cute, huh?

So, one more free pattern with a child-based theme. Now, get to work!
