The Great Horned Owl-FREE Paper Piecing Pattern

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 7.26.02 AM

Good Morning, Quilters and Owl-Lovers!

I hope you had fun doodling and free motion quilting yesterday’s tutorial:  Olivia’s Owls.  They were a lot of fun!  (I will try to add a Fox and a Raccoon to our Woodland Animals…but it will take some time to create a suitable design.)

Today, we have a real treat from our friend, Peggy Aare.  Peggy is offering the Great Horned Owl paper piecing pattern FREE to readers of The Inbox Jaunt!  Thank you, Peggy! This pattern is based on a photo Peggy took of the gorgeous bird while attending a Raptor Banding course in her home state of Wisconsin.  (Obviously, Peggy is a lady with many interests and many talents!)


Great Horned Owl, Paper Piece Pattern by Peggy Aare


  • The first attachment has two pages that describe the borders for a 60″ x 65″ quilt with the owl at the center.
  • The second attachment (24 pages) has the color chart, the triangle template, a one-page line drawing, the full-sized (32″ x 28″ line drawing), and reversed paper piecing templates for the face details.
  • Quilters may not need to print all the pages, but just use them as a reference.
  • Quilters should use the full-sized line drawing for the basis of the paper piecing templates.
  • The shapes are all the same: equilateral triangles that finish at 4″ on a side. Piece them individually and then assemble as you would for a normal patchwork project, in strips or in blocks.
  • The iris and pupil need to be appliqued.. Templates included.

Feed Sack Paper Piecing Project-FREE today!

Feed sacks


One of my favorite posts and discussions at The Inbox Jaunt was September’s post on Feed Sacks.  The stories and comments generated were quite nostalgic and often funny.  (I loved the stories about the teenage boy clerks who would have to move bags and bags of meal in order to get the right fabric for the ladies…)   All of the stories were filled with history and Americana–thank you to all who shared!


Peggy was also impressed by the memories garnered by the feed sack photos and was inspired to create this fabulous paper piecing pattern for us.

  Note from Peggy:

I did a quick full-sized line drawing for the War Eagle Mill feed sack. No color chart, no individual templates, but a simple plan that fits on 4 pages to finish at 12 ” x 16″. There are 6 pages in this PDF. The first is a color page, then 4 pages for the line drawing, and last is the template for the water with the original text superimposed on it for people to (trace and) sew as text outlines if they wish… A real FMQ project ! This probably all that’s necessary, though I can do a detailed plan like the others, if you wish.
