Quilting: A Quilting Journey Round Robin Bee

FINISHED

A Quilting Journey Round Robin Bee started about two weeks ago when I sent my starter block and I received my first block from Vickie. She sent along Alexander Henry's Spotted Owl print in green and white. The print reminds her of her grandmother. We were given free reign to create a block in any size that used a fussy cut piece of the owl fabric and incorporated a star.

Below you will see Vickie's starter block on the left and my contribution to her quilt on the right. She wrote in her instructions about the possibility of someone making a wonky house with a star in the sky and I immediately thought about a tree... with a star in the sky and a partial star as a flower.

This owl was my favorite...


I had a lot of fun making this block and I hope Vickie enjoys it! I can't wait to see her quilt come together!

I love this block so much and think it will be perfect for a bee that I am in, how did you make it and did you use a tutorial?

The owls are so cute!

I did not use a tutorial... just sort of figured it out as I wend along. I have seen entire blocks that look like the tree and I came across a flickr photo where someone had used that block style as a tree on a mini quilt. I would be happy to make a tutorial if you are interested.
