Owls, you say....... what owls? Look closely at the fabrics, and you'll see little owls floating around. In addition to owls, there are buttons, and raindrops and bicycles floating around on the fabrics as well. What a fun combination. Those owls, though, were the inspiration for the quilting design, which is also owls. One is wide awake, with eyes wide open, and the other is sound asleep with eyes shut. Sometimes a quilting design seems like it was made for a specific quilt. This was one of those times.
