In order to puzzle you, I left a part of the tablecloth in the picture, instead of cropping it. The organza idea is nice, but I don't have any; this is what I intended: Copy shamelessly from Jude and embroider the bird within the grid of the chequered fabric. I cut a paper stencil for the bird's shape and outlined it with a running stitch.
The story behind it: There is a sparrow hawk in our region which flies low between the trees. I saw him/her rob a young magpie. The exited parents followed with shrieks of horror. A few days later, the sparrow hawk came into our backyard, flying no higher than the roof rail. This bird has something weird!
I intended this quilt to be a nap quilt, but not, if it gives me nightmares. Well -- being creative means you surprise yourself sometimes.
