I had some fabric with feathers on, some with leaves, I love owls and so 'Owls in a Tree' came about. My daughter (quite young when this was first made) helped with the eyes and gave all the owls a name. Although I made it with 'conventional' colours I think it would also look great made with modern jazzy colours. Funky owls perhaps?
I've been doing patchwork for more years than I care to think about. I'm a regular contributor to British quilting magazines and teach at my local quilt shop.
