Whisper Challenge - Part Seven

This blog is part of the series about the Whisper Challenge quilts.

I got this little 12" x 12" quilt from Ada Levins.  It was the 6th one in the series for Sharry Olmstead.
This quilt was made from ombre fabric, which I love and it certainly is a depiction of the sun.  Ada did a lot of work to get all of the pieces appliqued down and still retain the ombre effect.  It reminded me of the Southwest because of the color scheme.   I don't think Sharry has an affinity to the Southwest, so I knew that I probably wouldn't try to pick up on that theme.

What I do know about Sharry is that she has been overly generous with stuff that I need to make my bird nests, and gives me yarn galore almost every time I see her.  I knew that I was going to have to make a nest for her out of some of her yarn.  I designed a little quilt with a huge sun, a bird, and of course, a nest!

Here is the one that was passed along to me:

And here is the one I made:
