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:
