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.
