Details, Details

I found lots of wonderful details in the quilts on display at a northeast Ohio show at Lake Farmpark.

Love the little leaves.  Yes, the tree is indeed positioned like this on the quilt. It’s on the right side of a center medallion.  Note the bird plunging toward earth.  It’s the beginning of a theme I noticed when I looked over the pictures I took.

A wonderful 3D pine cone, and another bird.

Yet more birds – chickens in this one.

Machine quilting makes a checkerboard around this embroidered teapot.
