I took this photograph of a BlueJay on my crabapple tree in the back yard. The BlueJay is my Grandson Max's favorite bird so I have been wanting to make a quilt with one in it for a while now.
Chose this fabric for my background and quiilted it.
Now I am building the three making the bark and branches come alive with small pieces of fabric. I always take artistic license to add branches even if not on the original photograph. I will quilt these now and then see if it needs anymore.
A crisp but Sunny day today here in Wisconsin...may take a short break to take the dogs for a nice walk. They are so happy to be out walking again it is hard not too.
