Return of the Grackle by Diane Rusin Doran
Kali and I attended the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza XVIII show over the weekend. I made images of some of the best of the nature-themed quilts. As Kali said, "If these pieces were made by men, they'd be hanging in museums." Return of the Grackle, above, may have been my favorite.
In some cases, I jotted down a note about the quilter and the title of the work. If I did so, I have added the information to the caption. Otherwise, you'll have to use your imagination.

On Summit Trail by Deb BrockwayAnd, last but not least, this one's for Desert Packrat, because it reminded me of a picture he took recently during a hike on the Switchback Trail in the Sacramento Mountains.
