Sew Mollie Sue, Quilt Much? <-- You are here!
Let's give a round of appreciative applause to the two ladies who have brought us all together... Madame Samm, Sew We Quit, and Vickie, More Stars in Comanache. Thank you both for all you do!
Well, let's get to it!!
I have to share a story of when I first started contemplating which bird I would use for this hop...it wasn't an owl. Never crossed my mind...never gave it any consideration...at all! In fact...my focus seems to go towards chickens and roosters. I searched Pinterest for inspiration...high and low...and nothing really struck me as...OMG...that's it!! What I did notice was the number of owls Pinned...especially for crocheting. Hmmm...that's interesting I thought.
I did find a pattern I thought was too cute to pass up. Head over to see Julie at The Crafty Quilter for the pattern I used for my project.
Sew...with my materials list in hand...I headed to JoAnn's for some rooster fabric. I searched and searched through the quilting fabric and none of them seemed right for my little project. But AGAIN with the owls...what is up with all of the owls...and where are all of the roosters?? Frustration began to set in.
And then... I saw this really cute owl print. I thought I might just get a little of it to see what I can do with it...you know....for my stash. So I pulled it and dropped it in my boogie buggy. And then I saw the fruit print...colors matched so easily (love it)...and then the stripes (fabulous)...along with the floral (awesome)...this project was practically making itself!
Thank goodness...owls are birds!! :)
And because I chose the owl print followed by the fruit print followed by the stripes and followed by the red floral print, I was able to complete my kitchen plan. LOL! Confused?...let me explain.
You see, I had picked this wonderful color for the cabinets in our kitchen called Cinnamon Cake (new color is on the cabinets...no going back from that) and I wanted to paint the walls in a warm tone but I couldn't find a paint color I thought would compliment the cabinets...until this "owl" project.
I was so inspired by the red floral...I am going to recover my chair seats in that fabric...make a few pillows...paint the walls an autumn color (very warm and inviting)...a new mirror...and add some curtains...DONE! I am so excited. It seems like it just fell into place.
I can hardly wait to get started. It is going to be fabulous!! And "whoooo-whooooo" gets the glory...why the wise owl, of course!
Again...thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a lovely time "boogie-ing" the day away!
Visit again soon!
