Autumn has arrived, and owls are more noticeable in the fall. In the craft world, we've seen some truly adorable owl designs. How about placing an owl (or a row of owls) on a jelly roll, rail fence or bargello quilt? And who could resist a lovable owl-shaped pillow? Here are some of our favorite free patterns for owls.
