Round robin block; Christmas in Arizona

This block belongs to Lisa in Arizona. We are both members of a Fabulous First Timers RR on Crazy Quilting International. Out of the 5 ladies in our group, 3 of us chose a Christmasy theme for our blocks. Lisa uses soft greens and winter whites to decorate her home at Christmas, and this block will be the centerpiece of a tryptic CQ wall hanging. She asked for wildlife and natural motifs as opposed to Santas and reindeer. So that's what I gave her! I added the moon, leaves, and snowy owl button in the center patch, as well as the seam treatments around him. I also added the tiny squirrel button under Pam's beautiful tree (he's wondering if those little red beads are edible), and the cardinal in the pine bough in the left lower corner. As always, if you click on the pic, it will enlarge so you can see detail better.
