Owl is in the forest
When I went shopping with Cynthia, we looked at lots of leaf prints and both of us agreed the shades of green on this print worked the best with sky and owl.
So ... it is a bamboo forest, maybe not what my grandson will see in Oregon but certainly familiar with the rest of the Fukuda clan.
I appliqued some leaves left over from the scraps along the top edge and thought I might add more.
I am considering using some of the wood print to put in a few branches in the large blue areas. My other idea was to applique and quilt in many kinds of leaves on the sky area. They might look strange to have random leaves but maybe I could do them in autumn colors as if the wind is bringing them across the sky.
Probably adding random varieties of leaves would be the easiest. In a home full of naturalists, a bit of nature might not be strange.
I wish I knew how to grab a picture from facebook. The one posted there has his big round eyes open, looking much more like an owl than a wren.
At any rate, he is an early-bird and will have a bit to wait for that quilt.
Dream on, little chick!
