December Stash Bee Block

This month in Hive 4 of the Stash Bee, Debbie requested a machine applique block with owls. I had never done any machine applique before this request.

Armed with my roll of Wonder Under, Wednesday night I practiced my satin stitching (like a boss) around some scrappy pieces left over from my NY beauty quilt while I watched The Avengers. I almost didn't turn my machine off because the settings were just right.

Thursday night (while I packed to leave to go home for Christmas vacation) I made my happy little owl block. I adapted my pattern from some clip art that I found. Here are some in progress shots:

And here is the finished little guy:

Hopefully he'll be sent off today or Saturday. I'm leaving today to go to Ohio and then on to Michigan on Sunday while doing my best to avoid the snowstorm. Merry Christmas to all!

Linking up with Plum and June!
