Play Date Cafe Challenge

I finally worked up an entry for the Play Date Cafe's Challenge (#62), hopefully I can figure out how to get it linked correctly to be entered to win (keep your fingers crossed!). Each week the design team over a PDC issues a challenge revolving around a specific color palette. Most of the entries involve paper and cardstock, but mine is all fabric! Here is the color palette for Challenge #62:

I interpreted it with a simple nine patch block as a background and appliqued an owl with button eyes to the center. I machine stitched a branch and hand quilted the leaves in the pink corner squares. I think it turned out cute. Now that I've accomplished one of their challenges, I think I will make some more blocks to turn into a book........ stay tuned!
