The Owl and the Pussycat LOL!!!

Yesterday, I got to play for a little while in my BLUES for the January Rainbow Scrap Challenge - YUM!!!  There are several blocks I want to make this year, starting with this oh-so-cute little owl, created by Shayla Wolf at Quiltmaker magazine....


"Hootie" debuted in the 7th volume of 100 Blocks...


Here is a mock-up of how it will look to include owls of all the different colors :)


My background fabric is a very dark blue with gold stars in it, so I have to be very careful about the BLUE fabrics I use for my owl so he will show up.  Either that, or I need to put the blue owl in the moon instead of the purple one - hmmmmm.......now there's an idea!!!  These are the fabrics I'm currently considering, but the picture is not great and the colors are somewhat washed out ..... it would help if I could remember to take pictures before it gets dark :)


I also want to make my own version of this Thangles Cat quilt that I found on Pinterest....click HERE to find the pattern and more information.  I wanted to do this one last year but never got to it.  This is the year!!!


I'm planning to work on some blue kitties today if I can find time in between NFL playoff games :)

And my jars of colorful crumbs really do "runneth over"!!!


I'm thinking of just sewing them all together and making a big block from each color, something like this picture from Pinterest which indicates it was taken from Craftsy ....


or .... I really love these wonderful diamonds being used for the 2014 Olympics in Russia ....


In addition, I still have to decide on setting ideas for the Fantasia and Lone Starburst blocks I made for the RSC last year and get them assembled into flimsies.  I really don't want them to become UFO blocks!!!

Come along and join in the Rainbow fun.....
       January projects are HERE!!!

  4. I'm giggling at your title, too -- we play it out at Joc's house every time I'm there! So you can guess I loved both your owl quilt layout and the pussycats ... how fun!! But the owl one is really darling, especially in the rainbow!! Lots of bright and lively color play here this morning -- matches my mood!! :)

  5. I love those owls!! I vote for the blue owl in front of the moon ... then you can use whatever blues you like. More ideas and things on my to-do list than I have time to even think about getting to ... I am not nearly as productive as you. ;-)

  13. This is the first time I had seen the Olympic panels. Wow! I am totally inspired to try this out with the crumb diamonds I have been saving for no apparent purpose. A finite rectangle of each with some "modern" white space. What a fun idea!

    Oh, the diamonds--I definitely vote for the diamonds!! : )

  18. Oh, those owls are so cute! I have a different cat pattern and never thought of rainbow cats so I might use that idea. And, I always love crumb quilts especially in rainbow colors.

  19. I think we need to add a bunch more sewing hours to the day! Love the idea of putting your blue in the yellow moon. Such pretty projects you are taking on this year.
