100 Days – Week of Techniques – Featured Quilt 3

Val Campbell’s striking You Can Call Me Owl quilt measures 34½” x 50½” and uses Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts Ticker Tape technique.

Here’s what Val had to say about her quilt:

“This quilt was born out of the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along #9, where the style of the quilt was “Ticker Tape Quilts.” I had been saving all my scraps in hopes to one day make this type of quilt and when I came across the quilt along, I just knew I had to join it.

I wanted to think outside the box by creating an actual object with this quilt rather than just quilting scraps in a random pattern. I found [a picture of an owl] on Flickr and knew that was going to be my Inspiration.

I think what makes this quilt Modern is the bright punchy colors, lack of a pattern, and ticker tape technique all wrapped up into one.”

Val also wrote a great blog post about the process of creating this quilt, which can be found here. She is a member of the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild.

  1. I started off making rag quilts and love the idea of melding it with more traditional quilting, but with that modern look. And LOVE the owl pattern at the same time. Your quilt is so enjoyable on so many levels, thanks for the inspiration. Will be checking out your pattern.
