The Big Finish
I am very proud to announce that I finished my very fun and colorful owl quilt! I can’t actually believe it’s done! It was an absolute blast to make! Probably because I was constantly using new fabrics because it’s so scrappy. I will definitely be making another one. Maybe not quite so colorful; I have so many ideas in my head!!
Each of these hexagons was made by hand with the english paper method. Then I put Heat and Bond Lite on the back and ironed them down onto my white background. Next time I will draw a grid on the fabric to make placing them a bit easier! Then I simply quilted from each corner of the quilt.
The lines intersected in the middle of each hexagon. It also left a charming triangle pattern on the back.
What I wasn’t expecting was how stiff it would be when it was all quilted. It honestly could be a wall hanging! Maybe all that Heat and Bond will wash off… I don’t have a lot of experience with it. Hopefully it will soften up in the wash!? I am going to throw it in the wash (with a color catcher) and hope for the best!
Statistics: ~ measures 33 x 41 ~280 hexagon ~each measure 2.5 inches from point to point ~139 different fabrics
I’m really glad I went with the pink stripe for the binding. It finished it off in a fun way.
I love these owls! I could just make this quilt over and over again!
