Owl and Geese Mini Quilt

Owl and Geese Mini 

Through Instagram I heard that Kristi from Schnitzel and Boo was organizing a mini quilt swap. I'd done a couple of swaps in the past and I loved it, so I signed up! I think there ended up being something like 180 swappers.  This one was set up so that you only know who you are sending to.  Each of us filled out a questionnaire so that Kristi could pass it on to whomever had our name.  When I read the info my partner provided I knew almost instantly what I wanted to do. This is the initial fabric stack I pulled from my stash. I ended up digging through my scrap bin to add a bit more variety.

What do you think partner? #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap

The owl and geese are paper pieced. (Please excuse the horrible pictures, I didn't think to get out the good camera when I was sewing.)

 Does it look like an owl?  It still needs eyes.

 Hopefully I'm on to something for my #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap.

After getting those parts done I did struggle a bit with what do in the corners but ultimately settled on more dark brown to help pull it all together.

 Coming together...I need to make something for the corners.  #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap  #makeaquiltmakeafriend

I can't wait to get this in the mail to my partner on Monday.  I really hope she likes it!
