Tufted Titmouse

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.

  1. Laura, if you put up bird feeders, eventually you will see the tufted titmouse in Florida. They appear a little darker here than in the north.  I live in West Central Florida, and they appear in my yard about the same time the goldfinches are changing color and preparing to move North.  Beautiful work!
