Roly-Poly Owl Pillow Tutorial
I think this is my favorite pillow…..this week. This Roly Poly owl definitely makes me think of Fall.
A couple weeks ago Mary from The Tulip Patch had a tutorial showing how to make a cute owl with the AccuQuilt GO! Baby and 3.5 inch Drunkard’s Path die. If you click on her link you can see how she made it. I don’t have the die so I just used a template to cut my blocks.
I added a 1.5 inch strip of batik to the block and then grabbed out some of my neutral colored string blocks.
I pieced some string blocks and then I cut 2 blocks on the diagonal and added the pieces on each side.
I ended up with a 13 inch block and then added a 3.5 inch border to give me a 19 block.
I recently bought the Tattered Leaves die from Sizzix and cut some little leaves out of batik.
The leaves aren’t very big – about 3.5 inches but have a lot more detail than the AccuQuilt dies and looked perfect on this pillow.
