Raven Says Hello!
My Mom found this fabulous raven applique pattern during her travels in Alaska last summer, called "Raven Says Hello!", by Cindy Shake Designs. We both love all corvids, but especially ravens (if you've never read Bernd Heinrich's Mind of the Raven, check it out!). So, I decided to make this wallhanging for my Mom's birthday this year. I didn't quite make that deadline, but finally finished it recently. I chose Kaffe Fassett fabrics from the Millefiore collection, used buttons for the eye, and embellished the lower right corner with a cute house button. It finished about 15" square, and is hung from a quilt hanger that I recently purchased from Joann's.

Love it, and as an English teacher, I've been madly in love with Poe's "The Raven" for years!!ReplyDelete
I really like it, too. Yes, the ravens were all over in Alaska. I once heard about some people who loaded up the back of their pickup with groceries at Sams and then while they were in another store the ravens got into everything and tore it all apart. There is a very good reason that they are known as the Tricksters!ReplyDelete
