Indian Summer

I have tried the arrangement with the words forming the border. I quite like it but am having a problem with what to put in the middle. I have pinned some fabric in fall colors to the wall but have no exact plans as to how they will end up. I 'll do one on paper and use that for a pattern. On the left is a picture of a blue jay printed from the computer, just to see how it would look. I've no idea how I will try to put that one together. I'll probably have to put a large tree or branch on that side for it to sit on. I am thinking a bit of raw edge aplique. I've never tried it but I think it would suit this project very well.

I have made two more aprons but I haven't gotten any pictures of them yet.

I love those colours! The whole idea is wonderful, & the Blue Jay would be perfect.

your fall fabrics would make a wonderful bargello, and you could put the jay on top...? :-)

Joyce blue and yellow is always such a cheery combo - looks good with other brights too! This will be an interesting one to watch :)

Love your orange apron too - so simple and so effective - the best!

I LOVE what you are doing here! I'm seeing a large black gnarly tree coming up through the center of the piece. Birds in complimentary colors would be nice.
