I found the owl fabric difficult to work with. Perhaps it is because I am in an orange/yellow/red mode. Perhaps because the flannel is very matte and the colors read differently on it. I tried many color combinations and designs.
At one point my quilt was going to be all blues, with strips of owl fabric in between. I realized that many of the blues were too large scaled and contemporary looking, with too many white accents. Maybe that will be the next quilt, a double one for the guest room. I also decided that the owls needed some order around them.
So I did an Irish Chain Quilt. I learned a lot while I did it. I seem to need those oranges, yellows and reds. And I am terribly sloppy. I pieced the squares in strips. The flannel stretched and I sewed inaccurately, and I came up with strips of different lengths. Did I start all over? No.
