A Charity Quilt...

I've been stitching this quilt to donate to the victims of the Orlando shooting.

I still need to machine quilt it.
The Orlando Quilt Guild is sponsoring this has received so many blocks and
 so many quilts that they can also donate quilts to the first responders.
A way to let the victims, their families and the responders
know that they have not been forgotten.

A Fawn...

A Mule Deer and her fawn behind the house.

The fawn has an injury to her neck.
Looking pretty...


Watching me, I'm very far away...


and jumping so I don't think the injury was holding her back.

Bird Dance

I bought Sue's book Bird Dance a year ago with the hope
that one day I could make this fun and delightful quilt.
The design is based on antique tiles of folk-art birds that
Sue saw while traveling in the Mediterranean.
I am blown away to have received an email a few days ago
 that an anonymous donor had gifted me with a gift card to Sue's website.

So with much gratitude to this person,
 I was able to order the kit for Bird Dance.

 So if you are that person,
 just know how much your generous gift means to me.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Fastest land mammal in North America up to 60 miler per hour.

They have a few fawns nearby,
but I haven't been able to get a photo of them.

They have such beautiful markings...
notice the black markings inside her ears.

A male, still trying to shed his winter coat.

Two females who are still shedding their winter coasts, also.

The Pictorial Quilt

My progress on The Pictorial Quilt by Harriet Powers.
The descriptive captions are just as Harriet wrote them so many years ago.
Block 4...
Adam and Eve in the garden. 
 Eve Tempted by the serpent. 
 Adam's rib by which Eve was made.
The sun and the moon. 
 God's all seeing eye and God's merciful hand.
John baptizing Christ and the spirit of God descending
and rested upon his shoulder like a dove.

Jonah casted over board of the ship and swallowed by a whale.

Once again this is the pattern book that I'm using to reproduce this historical quilt.
