  I love Owls and I love this new design from McKenna Ryan but it just
isn't affordable.  Ah well, maybe another day?  jennellh

You NEED  that quilt.  It has your name written all over it.  Could you
start clipping coupons? sell off a few naughty QIs? Have a birthday?  Got to
be a way.  Polly

Re: I love Owls
I won't go into details about Miss-Chief's exploits since the last
story time - I admit that I am still smiling and shaking my head and I
do have a 'big' birthday coming in March except that decisions have to
be made about hdtv.  Canada's new budget is giving tax credits for
home renovations in 2009 - does an owl quilt qualify as insulation
expense??  The fabric selection for that quilt has got to make it one
of the most expensive ones in McKenna's collection and it probably
needs embellishment as well.  jennellh

Re: I love Owls
OMG!  $112 for an applique pattern.  That's outrageous!  Get a coloring
book and make your own.

Re: I love Owls
Hey, I never thought of that. But it would work. I don't know if
everyone remembers a product called Wallies. Well they were wall paper
cut outs of things you put up on the wall. Well I couldn't afford them
plus I couldn't find what I liked which is cartoon stuff. So I got a
Mickey & Minnie coloring book. Colored the pics with pencil crayon cut
them out with an xacto knife and glue them to the wall in the bathroom
with white school glue. Put 3 layers of glue. Never had a problem even
when hubby showered which he loved to heat it up in there with the
steam. They looked so good even when we moved out the landlord asked us
to leave them up. So if you cut around it leaving enough to fold under
it would work too for applique. Thanx, cuz I just never thought of that.
Would be an easy way for me to do some things I've been wanted to but
didn't know how.

Re: I love Owls
Could you be satisfied with just one of the individual patterns???  Her
patterns are gorgeous & I love her choice of fabrics.

Re: I love Owls
I could be satisfied with just one - I just wouldn't know which one to
choose!  I have a habit of knowing what is 'right' for someone else
but I just can never decide for myself...probably why I make scrappies
rather than 2colour traditionals.  jennellh

Re: I love Owls

Re: I love Owls
Jennellh It's a beautiful quilt - maybe you could manage to buy one
pattern at a time - one a month? That would give you a great project
for 2010!

You could just do one or two of the blocks.  You can also wait awhile
and this series will probably  go down some in price when the next
series is introduced.  Sometimes folks get rid of kits/patterns they
don't use on Ebay also.  Maybe there is another day if you are patient.

Re: I love Owls
I have checked some of the 'usual' Canadian online stores but this
pattern hasn't arrived up here yet - I'll keep checking for the kits
to begin and weigh up the costs involved then.  Who knows?  jennellh

Re: I love Owls
I had my eye on that for my mom, Jennell.  It's a really cool pattern. But I
decided it was pretty pricey too...and I'd probably never get it done.  She
has thousands of owls in her collection....I doubt if she will miss not
having this one.  And I have a couple other owl quilt patterns I haven't
made yet.

Re: I love Owls
What other owl patterns??  I have had several new owlie additions this
past year as gifts - including a barnowl coffee mug that Sis bought in
the Castle Howard gift shop in Sept.  Our Mum grew up in a cottage on
the estate when her father worked on the land - the stories that she
had to tell of life there.  I did christen the mug but I prefer not to
use this one regularly (just in case).  jennellh

Re: I love Owls
http://www.englanddesign.com/critters/ghowl.htm This is one of them.  The
other one, as I remember, is probably a self published pattern.  By that I
mean I doubt if it was carried extensively by stores and catalogues.  I'll
try to remember to check on it when I get back downstairs to my sewing room.
The pattern had simple blocks of different applique owl characters....almost
cartoony....but not quite.

Re: I love Owls
I remembered while visiting her site, that I have one of her nostalgia
designs still to work on!  http://www.englanddesign.com/nostal/qkitty.htm
- it could take a while to organize all the pieces involved before I
even think about fabric choices.  Thanks for the 'nudge' and I do like
her owl design also.  jennellh

Re: I love Owls
I've had the fabrics collected to do the owl pattern packed with the
pattern.  But have I make it yet??? NO!

Re: I love Owls
Kathyl, what do you mean you're upstairs?  Are you supposed to be there?
How did you get there?  Aren't you supposed to be confined to no stair
climbing?  Polly
