Happy Little Hooter

Well you knew I couldn't resist sewing startitis forever....

Now that we're almost halfway through February, it was time to start thinking about a birthday present for my Sister-in-Law. She likes owls, and you may recall, I've made her several owl-themed gifts over the years.

So naturally, this year, I went looking for an owl quilt block.
Pinterest came to the rescue with this cute  little hooter. It's made with squares and HSTs, just like Relic's  paw mat. It's well within my skill-level, and I thought it would make the sweetest little wall hanging.
So I printed out some graph paper, sketched him out, and calculated the squares I would need.
The scrap strip bin yielded up plenty of fabrics to work with. And after an hour or so of cutting, and a few HSTs sewn and trimmed...
My scrappy little owl is ready to assemble! But we'll save that for another day!
