This was part of my guild's stone soup challenge. I was given the 2 pieced squares, the large button, and the fabric for the pinwheels and their background. I had no clue what to do with it, the fabric was much calmer than what I tend to use. I pieced the background and the main parts of the birdhouses. The bird is needle turn applique. The rest is fused. There is thread painting on the flowers and the pinwheels are 3 D. I found the bird pattern in an old magazine. The birdhouses are my design as is the layout of the quilt. The lizard is a no longer used toy of my kids.
