From an orphan block to a pillow

Last week I have designed a new Owl pattern.
It looks cute and nice on the computer screen, but I decided to test it with real fabrics.

As I have many orphan blocks this time I made a pillow cover using this wonderful tutorial .
I have added a narrow yellow  strip and a wide grey one.
Add batting and make free motion quilting with traditional meanders, but added leaves.
It is easy to made.
First  try to draw with  a pencil on a sheet of paper. See the direction of movement.

 Try to make leaves with different shapes - see the detailed picture.

For the back I have chosen a pink heavy cotton fabric.
The final look
