Memento Crazy Quilt Block #3

I don't have a great memory for this block.  Nothing extraordinary to share except that the little owl brooch was a found a flea market years ago for a few dollars.  I've been saving it for something for myself and thought it would be a nice addition to my Memory Crazy Quilt:

The flowers behind the owl pin was a piece of floral lace.  I wanted it to pop so I added sequins to the edges.  A surprise right?  Pam likes sequins?  LOL!!!!

Another thing I wanted to do with this crazy quilt was to use some of my button collection.  Over the years, I've picked up so many buttons at flea markets that I really need to use them!  So this block has a pretty button cluster on it which balances nicely with the owls.

That's really pretty. I like the owl, and the button trail balance.

The owls are perfect! For some reason this block makes me think of picnics in the summertime.

Very nice. The owls are the first thing I noticed. It must be all that sparkle.

Hi Pam! As always, your blog has provided inspiration for me. I love your owls brooch and what you have done with it. I also have collected brooches from thrift shops over the years, mostly peacocks, owls and cats :-)
This is a bit off topic, but I am wondering if you know what has happened to Freda (Sew What's New blog). She stopped posting to her blog almost a year ago, and hasn't responded to emails that I have sent her.
