I love how you've scattered a trail of beads to tie the distinctive fabrics together. The little quilt is beautiful, Cyndi.

Thank you, Eileen. The trail is supposed to represent the migration flight of all the birds that pass through New England during the autumn. We sometimes see bird species for a day or two that we never have around here at any other time!
