Quilt Design “Whoot Do You Love” – A Reversible Elizabeth Hartman Quilt

Whoot do you love - an Elizabeth hartman Quilt

Last Updated on 11/18/20 by Rose Palmer

This reversible crib quilt uses some of the Elizabeth Hartman quilt designs on both sides of the quilt.

One side of this baby quilt is the Allie Owl pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.  The other side of the quilt uses some of the designs from the Elizabeth Hartman Forest Friends pattern. I used up all the scraps of left over Tula Pink fabric from another quilt ( “My Bohemian Princess” ) .

On both sides of the quilt, the patterns are off set from the center which makes it easier to do the longarm quilting and have it look good on both sides. I like making my quilt backs as interesting as the quilt fronts and have developed a number of approaches for designing quilt backs that you can read about in my Ideas for Unique Pieced Backing for Quilts post.

The fantastic longarm quilting was done by Cindy Carey of North Star Longarm Quilting. Even though the quilting is a straightforward edge-to-edge pattern, Cindy centered and sized the design around the large owl’s beak and eyes giving the owl a more authentic appearance.

This quilt won first place in the Baby and Children’s Quilts category at the Marathon Texas Quilt Show, Sept. 2018.

I photographed the quilt in the Chisos Basin in Big Bend National Park, Texas.

I had so much fun making these patterns that I did another version for my grandson’s room in shades of blue and grey which was also reversible and is called “Rowan’s Forest Friends Quilt”.

Thanks for visiting.
