And here's more of the antique quilt.
I was invited to participate in Sue Wildemuth's Eagle Quilts By the Decades Quilt project and I picked the 1830s and used the antique quilt above as my inspiration. I substituted an eagle pillar print for the ducks and made pairs of flying geese. Birds all around!!

The antique inspiration and the modern makeover getting acquainted before the eagle flew away to Sue's collection.
It was an honor to be commissioned to create this quilt and to be featured in the book and even on the cover. The book is available on amazon.
Here's a detail of the quilt and the eagle pillar print.
