I love Owls

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

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

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

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

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!

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. Take Care Joanna alberta

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. TAria

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.

What a simply beautiful quilt. I think I will save my pennies and buy the pattern to make it for myself.
Thank you for posting the website.

Saw that in the last Keepsake catalog, sure is pretty. (She writes Beautifully Simple on her website header -who's she kidding? :-) Now is that an owl or a pussycat down in the bottom right corner? Roberta in D

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

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

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

Her last pattern series of the arctic animals was also appealing to me just for the fun of it. jennellh

Oh, I shouldn't have looked. I just love her patterns. They are all so beautiful. But, as you said they are really expensive, and not in my budget either. Thanks for the peek. Hope you can at least get one or two for yourself.

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.
