Q is for Quilts, November 4, 2015

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and Wednesday Waters

ABC Wednesday
Q is for Quilt - a coverlet for a bed, made of two layers of fabric with some soft substance between them and stitched in patterns to prevent the filling from shifting. Many quilts are embellished by piecing (sewing together small colored pieces of fabric), applique, and embroidery.

Wild Bird Wednesday
American Crow, Corvus brachyrhynchos, Lee County, Mississippi, USA, October 25, 2015

Crows are common birds in many parts of the world. They may be tamed and kept as pets if they are captured when they are still very young.

Crows are omnivorous, eating insects, nuts, seeds, fruit, vegetables, and meat.

  3. Great shot of the crow and beautiful quilts.

  4. Quilting has become an art form. Last weekend an art show was held in Houston.

  5. The annual quilt festival in Houston has quilts that are valued at thousands of dollars. What the quilters can accomplish with fabric is truly amazing. I have many quilts made by my mother and aunts and by my husband's mother and aunts. They may not be works of art but they are works of heart. I treasure them.

  6. Quilts galore!!! I always admire the diligence and hard work [no to mention the long hours] of those that construct and make such beautiful quilts. I made ONE in my lifetime, and vowed too much work. lol

    LOVE the crow images.

    And water fun activities like this....NICE!

  7. Crows are very smart birds. Fun to watch---sometimes.

  8. Great photos of the crows. I had some of our crows calling loudly in the backyard this morning.

  9. Beautiful Quilts for Q and lovely nature photography besides!

    Wishing you a Happy Week,

  12. Nice shot of the crow - I suspect it would have been interesting to see how it opened the acorn.

  13. a q bird, and a quiet water,
    that's perfect for Wednesday.

  14. My aunt was an enthusiastic quilter, they are beautiful objects.

  15. All of your photos are great! Quilts are always so gorgeous knowing the work that was put into them. The water shot looks so much fun and the crow looks like he's up to something!
