For Halloween, I decided to make one of my mixed media series on nest quilts with a bird on top of a nest, which is on top of a jack-o-lantern. This is my loose translation of the inspiration.

The bird was assembled on top of my pattern and shaded with colored pencil. The pumpkin was also shaded and highlighted with colored pencil, then sprayed with Krylon workable fixative, which keeps the pencil from rubbing off. Both of these pieces were fused and sewn to the background.
