|I love the the robin IN the bird bath and the look on the other robin's face.|
As a child, I loved the song
"In the Leafy Treetops" (the birds sing "good morning").
I still love birds singing in the tree tops.
After reintroducing quack grass to our yard,
Mr. W. and I made a compromise that I would
only use black sunflower seeds in my bird feeders.
This spring my bird bath has been a beehive of activity.
I have been delighted to see multiple birds
drinking and bathing and vying for a spot.
I saw this pattern and loved the two colored twist.
Using this as my inspiration, I set out to create my own.
(I would have been ahead time wise to have
bought the pattern but this is what I came up with.)
In the Leafy Treetops Quilt
The solid colors are Kona cottons.
The leafy treetop fabric is a Cloud 9 fabric from JoAnn's.
The back is a Peter Pan fabric I purchased in the 90's.
(I'm trying to 'shop' at home more . . . )
The quilt design is a beautiful bird and flower from
