It’s Jennifer Heynen week on the ThermoWeb blog! When I was asked if the fabulously talented designers here could devote a week to sewing my patterns with my fabrics I about fell on the floor. I could not have been more excited about the opportunity.
My new Not So Spooky Halloween fabric is arriving in stores right now, and since the day I turned this line in I have been wanting to sew my Okey Dokey Owl and Friends Applique Quilt from the fabric. It arrived just in time for me to whip one up for this week.
This is a fun quilt to make, and I am always surprised how much quicker it goes than expected. I like to use the HeatnBond® Lite for fusing all of my fabrics to the quilt blocks. Since it’s light, the quilt is still super soft when finished.
Owl Pieces on HeatnBond® Another trick for appliques is to cut out the center of the interfacing before pressing it on to the fabric. You can save the center for smaller appliqués down the road.
Here’s a close up of one of the owls on the quilt.
The quilt pattern is for a smaller quilt measuring 36″ x 48″. I wanted this one to be bigger so I added a couple of borders to the quilt. The outer border is a 3″ strip of the black candy corn fabric. The 10″ border is the border fabric from Not So Spooky and I added the Halloween Cat fabric for corners.
There’s a giveaway going on with my patterns on the blog this week, but if you can’t wait to get a hold of a pattern then you can find them in my Etsy shop. They are marked 20% off this week to celebrate my week on the ThermoWeb blog.
