When I started thinking about my March mini it involved the birthday gift my family gave me--an Adirondack Birding Tour.
My birthday was in December and my daughter and I spent 4 wonderful hours with John and Pat Thaxton of Adirondack Birding Tours.
We drove the back roads of Westport, NY, and along the shores of Lake Champlain. We saw lots of birds some more common than others.
American Black Ducks were a first for me but they were too far away to photograph.
Guess what this is?? A porcupine climbing down a tree!
By the time we got back to the
cabin, my granddaughter had arrived and gave me this watercolor she did
of a Cedar Waxwing. Isn't it fantastic? It literally took my breath
Back home I started making 4" blocks using small scraps I had saved for another project.
Here's another but my idea wasn't coming together so I decided four was enough :)
I added leftover hsts in the corners and a center block of Birds to represent the birthday gift I shall always remember.
I pieced the backing and matched the design by folding and top stitching it down.
On another note I want to thank all of you who responded to my question about storing quilts. Your suggestions were much appreciated!
Have a great week!
