I recently had a draw for two patterns: one of my own and one that was graciously donated by my friend, Kay Mackenzie. "Sweet" by Kay Mackenzie is a luscious and low-cal array of tempting treats which you can create using your favourite appliqué technique. While Kay usually prefers a needle-turn appliqué technique, I am partial to fusible web appliqué and could see making this project with either technique.
"Hootie" is actually not a quilt pattern at all, but rather a trio of charming owl stuffies. Although it is not quilting, per se, the pattern does use fusible web appliqué when applying the owls' features. While the owls in the photo are unembellished, you can use crystals, beads and trims to enhance the owls. I can see Momma Hootie putting on the glitz with a pearl necklace and earrings, while Poppa Hootie has crystal buttons down his chest. The possibilities are endless and the choice is yours!
Congratulations to Pat Clarke, who won the draw.
Have fun adding your own personal touch to both of these whimsical patterns.
