Good Morning, Quilters!
Today, I have a real treat for you!
We are continuing our owl theme this week with a FREE Owl Paper Piecing Pattern.
Peggy Aare and Susan Hilsenbeck
First, I must introduce (or reintroduce) you to two readers, Peggy Aare and Susan Hilsenbeck.
Several years ago–back when we were The Inbox Jaunt—the very generous quilt designer, Peggy Aare of Wisconsin Quilting, offered our readers several free paper piecing patterns. (Some were based on Silent Sunday and Fine Art photos.)
During quarantine, the talented quilter, Susan Hilsenbeck used the pattern to create her beautiful version of the pattern. Susan’s Owl quilt was featured in Susan Sider’s book: Quarantine Quilts: Creativity in the Midst of Chaos.
Be sure to hear Susan Hilsenbeck discuss her quilt HERE
Peggy’s Updated Pattern
Peggy is again offering her updated Great Horned Owl Pattern —
FREE for readers of LoriKennedyQuilts!
Thank YOU, Peggy!
NOTES AND TIPS FROM PEGGY
Quilters may not need to print all the pages, but just use them as a reference.
Quilters should use the already reversed, full-sized line drawing for the basis of the paper piecing templates.
The shapes are all the same: equilateral triangles that finish at 4″ on a side. Piece them individually and then assemble as you would for a normal patchwork project, in strips or in blocks.
The round eyes need to be appliqued
There are many brown shades. You can combine colors on the chart to use what you want. Using shaded ombre brown fabric or tea-dying works well.
