As you know, I'm a fabric designer who avoid owl design on my fabric many years.
Owl design was popular in Japan before US market.
My mother who corrected the owl's charms since she found her breast cancer.
Owl = FUKULOE in Japanese.
There is the same sound, but different Chinese character and different meaning in Japanese language.
FUKULOE can be Owl（梟） or Without problems（不苦労）
My Gem tree is creating Without problems（不苦労）in positive way.
Finally, I used the owl in my design that was my quilt since my mother passed 5 years ago.
I like the texture of material and colors.
