1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.
2. Quilt as desired. For the machine quilting on this quilt, Vicki Hoth of Handi Quilter says they chose contrasting straight lines and curves, repeating variations of the chevron motif for a cohesive design. The chevron appears in the owl belly and beak and in the outer border. Curvy designs, including the overall background feathers, side-by-side ovals around the owl belly, and spirals in the owl eyes, soften the geometric angles created by the chevrons (Quilting Diagram).
3. Bind with dark teal print binding strips.
