When I took the photo of the bird in front of the red tree last time, I apparently wasn't done. She kept chirping to me to take her photo. She didn't trust my photo skills so she didn't pose - she just sat very still so I could take a photo that wasn't blurry. Thanks, Robin!
After I did that, the crow let me know he was next, but I couldn't see him and he wasn't willing to come any closer. Maybe next time, Crow.
2020: Weeks 46 of 15 Minutes to Stitch
Even though this bird also stood very still, my photo of her is still blurry. I was supposed to have started the quilting process at the beginning of the quarter so I could finish by the end of the year, but I keep wanting to add things. Good thing my word of the year is laid-back! There is already a bird on the quilt, but I couldn't resist adding this one. I am really happy with how it turned out. I traced the bird on typing paper, pinned it on the quilt, and stitched through the paper, and then pulled the paper out.
I shouldn't have read the quote, because it made me think of a candle that I just saw during a quiltalong. Then I read the quote more carefully, and it is the torch that is the topic of the quote.
So I added an Olympics torch. It is in honor of the delayed Olympics in Japan, as well as all the other Olympics we have watched on TV. The fire fabric has been asking to be in the quilt for a long time. It has metallic in it and I didn't really want to add it until now, but I think it is appropriate for a flame.
Now the feather tells you to look down, but the torch makes your eye ricochet up to the right. This quilt will let you get your eye exercises in for sure.
