Well, this does not look like much of anything but it is quilted and ready. Most of it will be covered by what is planned so no need to make it any more complicated then this.
This cold and windy weather has brought many varieties of woodpeckers to the suet feeder . This one is so beautiful with his bright red head.

Today is a day to stay in the warm studio. The high winds and cold temperatures make indoor work the perfect solution. This is definitely a full winter like day. I have a feeling this is going to be the harsh winter that is being predicted because it is beginning early just like last year. So getting out the gloves, mitten, scarves and hats today.

I like to make my large trees with a background fabric all fused and cutout first. Then I can place the smaller pieces of bark on top of the background using it as the shading and outlining of each piece. I have pinned it on to the quilts background where I like it. I have left the fusible paper on it because I first want to put on leaves and nuts That will be behind the trunk and some of the branches. Only then will I fuse it on and begin the bark. So leaves next.
