I wanted to create something to use in the early spring months. A time that is still without much color up here so the black and white blocks fill the bill for that. The surrounding colors I chose, worked in a modified Log Cabin block, add color to the piece along with reminding me of the pastels of early blooms and greenings mixed with the darker colors of branches and twigs.
I machine pieced and hand quilted it.
I did some quilting in each wildlife block to give it texture. (Unfortunately, I lack the photographic skill to make the hand quilting show up in the above photo. Or perhaps lack a good enough camera. Or perhaps a combination of both!)
Now, anybody got a good idea for a quilted piece using a block of bald eagles soaring, a clump of birch trees, and evergreens on a hillside?
