Summer Visitors

One of the delights of summer is the many visitors to our backyard. Birds sing me awake every morning (starting at about 4:00 a.m.!) They dash between the trees, swoop through the garden, and dance on the sunflowers.

Wrens occupy one of the birdhouses. For a tiny bird, they sure can belt out a long and tuneful song. And they are very protective of their territory, scolding me whenever I get near. In honor of the small but mighty wren, I’ve made this quilt Birdland #17.

Birdland #17 is a fused art quilt measuring 12″ x 12″. It is made with hand-dyed fabrics and threads and lovingly hand embroidered. Click here if your are interested in adding this fun little quilt to your collection.
