Happy November, Y’Owl!

Autumn is in full swing, and we want to add an owl to it. Let’s do that with the new Caron x Pantone …

We think very highly of Pantone™, who provides an “universal language of color”. See for example our project, the woven lace basket in our “Pantone and Lace” blog, earlier this year.

Finding a project was a delightful challenge, and in the end a popular, traditional owl quilt seemed to have just the right properties to translate well into the Caron x Pantone color combinations.

We used the TinyTURTLE™ loom. You will get about a dozen hexagons for each color, which makes it a good amount of hexagons to play with for many designs.

With a size 22″ x 22″ this makes a great newborn blanket or car seat cover, or a comfort blanket for a toddler. It could also be a pretty autumn wall hanging, throw pillow, or just add more hexagons to make it anything you want. For a real challenge, make six owls, maybe even in different color combinations, and turn them into a bed spread!
