What was your inspiration?
I was asked to create a Valentine's Day tutorial for a showcase at Sew BitterSweet Designs (http://blog.sewbittersweetdesigns.com), so I based these off of an owl quilt block I'd learned in an online bee a few months prior.
What are you most proud of?
I love that they're easy to make, and fun for all ages!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time, play with fabrics, and feel free to experiment- there's a lot of room for customization.
