Life’s A Hoot

Here is a quilt for my nephew, who’s expected to make his appearance in April.  I was going to wait until closer to his birth date to make and deliver the quilt, but the family decided to throw a baby shower on Christmas Eve, so I had a lot of motivation to get this done quickly.

My daughter named him “Hoot” when the parents-to-be came to visit, and that kind of stuck, so I just had to do an owl theme…but it’s certainly not overboard on the owls.

It’s really cute, and the pattern is Pure Baby Boy.  The pattern calls for using a Jelly Roll, but I opted for a charm pack and a single fabric backing.  The fabric is Hooty Hoot by Riley Blake.  The post wash measurement is 31.5″ x 39″.

I also had to make some coordinating burp cloths, because you can never have too many, and who doesn’t love some custom birth cloths?

  • I believe everything posted made a great deal of sense. However, think on this,
    what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I am not saying your content isn’t solid, but what if you added a post title
    that makes people desire more? I mean Southern Quilter
    » Life’s A Hoot is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they create news titles to get people interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested
    about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
