The Owl Strippie

These Strippies are just too cute! And quick too.

I’m always on the look for a cute print when I go to a quilt shop and these Owls were purchased at Tiny Stitches in Marietta, GA but you can find lots of cute novelty prints online at Fabric.com. That’s where I found the the Ladybugs for Savannah’s quilt and the Butterflies for Emma’s quilt. I’d link to the fabrics but right now their site seems to be slow or down … by the time you read this it will probably be fine … Use their search button to find all kinds of novelties.

OK it’s working now… Here are three I used but there are lots more… And free shipping for orders of $35.
Owls
Ladybugs
Butterflies

Just remember these Strippies look best with a mid size print, one that’s not too big or too little.

PS, I love the new machine and am glad I went ahead and bought the cabinet too!

    Ooooooooo, I love it, love it, love it! Glad you showed it off because it’s just the perfect reminder and inspiration I need for an upcoming quilter’s gathering. Conveniently, there is a quilt shop just barely a mile from where we’ll be staying.

    Thanks for this idea, Mary…I’m going to crib it for the backing for a dinosaur quilt I’m making for a little boy in London. The dinosaur print I found that will be the basis for the front is really adorable (http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=137601&sid=31U9Hz2x-2mp8eH-54112455900.70), but when I sent a pic off to the mom she told me her other boys said “but where’s the T. Rex?!! So, it was back to the drawing board to find another dino print WITH a T. Rex…(http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=152408&sid=31U9Hz2x-2mp8eH-54112455900.70). The dinosaurs on that one are more or less in long rows, so I think the strippy idea will work for the backing, alternated with cute brights, and the kids will find the T. Rex when they turn the quilt over…

    Love the owl fabric and the colors are just the kind of bright ones I like best. I may have to try one of these strippies as a baby gift for one of my nieces. I love these simple designs for kids’ quilts especially.

    It is really cute ! I have made a few strippies. I’m working on one for my youngest grandson with ‘Thomas’ the train and matching colors. It is really a quick quilt to make.
