What a Hoot Throw

Strips cut from a variety of fabrics fit together like a puzzle to form a feathered friend. Plenty of open space on this quilt canvas means room for you to show off your creative quilting. Fabrics are from the Les Amis by Patty Sloniger, Cotton Couture, It’s a Boy Thing, and Cream Puff collections, all from Michael Miller Fabrics.
