Owls for Baby

OK, so I've been working on a chevron quilt for a friend. She wanted an owl on it which I was a little hesitant about since I really don't do appliqué work. 

So I've been telling a few of my quilting friends that I've never done appliqué. Well, I'm here to tell you that I lied. Not intentionally. Years, and I mean, YEARS ago my husband bought me a quilt pattern that he wanted me to make. Almost the entire piece is appliqué. LOL. The funniest thing is that it hangs in my family room and I see it every single day. I attempted another appliqué quilt a year or so ago. I used the wrong stuff and it was a complete mess. My owls are my first attempt since. This time I had the right backing.
