The background of this block is pieced.
I drew this layout of the block on EQ but
I used graft paper, pencil and my own measurements for design and cutting.


The owl is the main component of the applique pieces.

There are several smaller appliques, including a snail,
that are optional and may be added.

Most of these appliques were handdrawn by me ...


... and my furry helper ...

This block measures 12 and 1/2 inches wide by 24 and 1/2 inches high.

Bonus Block for this month
and it will be released on June 15th.
