Free Pattern Friday – Owl Wish Upon A Star


Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Once again, I’ve dug into my “Unpublished” folder and come up with what I hope you will think is a gem!

Way back in 2010 or 2011, I sent out my first offering to a magazine for publication. It was this fun pattern, Owl Wish Upon A Star. Unfortunately, this sweet guy was rejected and he’s languished on my hard drive ever since!

Here he is today, a super simple 12″ pattern to paper piece. I’ve also included some fun mocked up versions so you can see what a repeat of this sweet block looks like.

How about a fun quilt mock up using one block repeated?

Now, what if it was really colorful? I just love this one!

And. of course, I had to have one for Halloween! (Thanks to Jewells for the nudge!)

Wizard with Toad Witch with Cat

There’s just something a little extra magical about a story with animals in it. Perhaps it’s how they seem to perceive our needs and be our friends, without ever being able to verbally communicate. Maybe it’s because they’re cute or maybe, just maybe, it’s because we see something simple and appealing when we look at our cat curled up in a spot of sunshine.
