Cut Fabrics


Cut pieces in the following order.

To simplify assembly of the pieced owl, cut pieces as specified, then stack them according to circled group numbers provided in diagrams 5–7.

Cut light tan print inner border strips lengthwise, parallel to the selvege.

Four owl print outer border strips were cut widthwise and two were cut lengthwise so the owl print runs in the same direction around the quilt. If you’re not using a directional fabric, cut seven 6x42" strips and piece them to make four 6x55-1⁄2" outer border strips.
