Love Birds

Latest progess on the bird quilt is going slowly because the husband keeps me busy. He is out of work now with some hopeful applications lingering. And I have been working on two websites, together with him. We are a good team.
What do you think: Do these birds show a young but almost grown-up bird being fed by an adult? Or are they lovers with the male making a show for the female? I'm not sure. The quilt is large enough to sleep under it. All the solid red parts will be covered by more pieces and more birds -- although they come and go, this is not in my command. I might work in a more rational way by doing the pieces first, then fixing the birds on them and in the end do the whole quilting. But this is not the way I work. It is more like my life goes: Some ideas are new, I carry them out and finish them, day by day.

perhaps one is trying to entice the other to fly away with him (or her)

I love it Eva! I'd prefer to think of the two as love birds!

I like the black birds on the patterned background very much. They seem close in size to be anything other than mates.

I vote for love birds too. This piece is utterly exquisite.

I love that there is enough ambiguity in that patch to let people form their own visions of what's going on.
