I fell in love with a photo by Rolff Nussbaumer and with his permission to use it as inspiration I created this quilt. It measures 30" x 21". I hand dyed the background fabric, and the fabric for the leaves and painted the little bird with fabric paints. I then fused all the parts and machine quilted it heavily. We used to live in Wisconsin, where the tufted titmouse was quite common. Now living in Florida I never see them anymore, so now I have a permanent resident inside.
