Introducing Hootsville Row! August 20 2016, 0 Comments

Hootsville Row originated as a 12" block I designed a few years ago for one of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazines. Hootie, as I called him, was one single owl perched on a branch with a golden full moon behind him. I decided to design a quilt around Hootie and create a whole family of owls. I love how Hootsville Row turned out! My favorite part is their "Brady Bunch" style eyes that are all looking at one another!

To make the owls we chose 6 fabrics in 9 different colorways and arranged them from dark to light. This creates a fun gradating effect that makes the owls look dynamic! Play with the eye position when you make the owls - it is fun to give them each their own personality.
