Owls, owls everywhere


Owls have been a theme of late what with the previous quilt and these little quilts I've been working on.  First there were the owl coasters I made for my sister from the sweet Japanese owl print.  These coasters are 4"square.


Then, I heard about the owl theme for the 6"-12" mini quilt swap on Flickr and I just had to do it.  I took the same owl fabric for my inspiration and created an applique based on those owls.  I sent one to my swap partner, Calamity Kim, and made another one for me!  These measure about 8.5" square.  These are hand appliqued and hand quilted, with a little embroidery and the cool beads that I got at an antique store.
