A Sorority Quilt

I finished quilting the "owlie" quilt today.  It's a sorority quilt for Daughter 2 to give to a friend who will be graduating this Spring.  This was a fairly quick quilt, though I did put lots of hours into in over the weekend.
Here's a close up of how I did the Greek letters.  They are simply fused.  During the quilting process, I quilted around the edge of each letter, killing two birds (owls?) which one stone.
Here's the stripe which is the backing and will also be the binding.  For Alathia - this fabric (all three pieces) are from the "Forest Fun" line designed by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman.  Owls are one of Chi Omega's symbols, so I HAD to use an owlie fabric!
