I have to put a border on it yet. I like to play around with landscape quilts. My skill with this is a work in progress. I kind of wish I had made this a larger scale -- maybe just focus on the blackbird and the heron instead of the background, hills, etc. I used thread painting to make the heron and background trees. i used paint with a stencil to make the blackbird and stitched over top of it. I used beads for the eyes.
