I will be sharing a few of my summer projects over the next few days. The owl placemats were one of them. I attended a quilt show in Pine, Arizona with my sister. One of the booths had this delightful owl tablerunner on display. I bought the pattern - "Hoot, Hoot, Hooray!" by Trouble & Boo Designs. I actually enlarger the pattern for the placemats so my new Fiestaware dishes would fit perfectly. The fabrics are from my stash.
I machine appliqued the wings, beak, and eyes with monofilament thread. Batting is a fusible fleece. I'm very pleased with these little guys. They are a perfect fit with my brightly colored leather dining room chairs and Danish Modern table. Later I will do a post of table top with Fiestaware.
