Owls with Attitude consists of 20 Owls, each with its own personality, based on illustrations by Darcy Ashton in her book Outstanding Owls. A soft fleece is used to obtain the appearance of dimension and depth when decorative quilting stitches are added to the applique elements. The eyes realistically incorporate a speckle effect. The use of a softer, feathery, cover stitch perfectly finishes the applique pieces.
The decorative stitches on the Owls and background quilting were created by Darcy Ashton exclusively for embroidery machines The pattern includes instructions for creating a Wall Hanging, Tote Bag, or Owl Quilt, and detailed instructions for joining the quilted blocks.
Each of the 20 Owls has three options: 1. Autumn Owls (natural color) incorporates a custom Chrysanthemum background quilting exclusively designed for embroidery machines. 2. Colorful Owls each have a different background quilting based on well known quilt blocks with a matching 3"" block that can be freestanding or used as corner blocks for a wall hanging. 3. For 8"" wide hoop, all Owls can be done in the hoop without a quilted background.
