Owl pillow

I’ve had some machine embroidery fun lately!

www.embroidershoppe.com

has some REALLY cute OWLS!!

You know I LOVE owls!!

Here’s the link to THIS owl

I had it stitched out on white a while ago and I’m working on a quilt pattern for embroideries but for ANY embroidery, wait and see Winking smile

So I had this owl to work with and made an ON POINT block.

My daughter got invited to a birthday party next weekend to one of her class mates and she’s been to this girl’s birthday several years in a row now and I’ve sewn her lots of THINGS already!- stuffed owl, portfolio, a skirt and I can’t remember what else.

I asked her mom what her favorite colors were and when she said aqua/blue I thought of this block and to turn it into a pillow!

So I found more scraps of matching fabrics and added strips to the block, then quilted it and trimmed it.

How adorable Bea!!! She is going to love it - quilts are the gifts that last long after the toys and "fads" are gone :*)
