I started with the cats (Tika - white cat, Jada - the grey one) in the tree and Lucky the dog on the ground - the ball in his mouth is typical Lu. He is obsessed with the ball! The birds were a naturel fit as my backyard has so many, may I confess they are all grey and brown little things along with a large amount of magpies - but I thought I could be forgvin to have some color. In the mood of spring, this is the spring quilt featuring spring flowers that were blooming in my mother-in-laws garden as we still had snow. Oh to live in BC, dare to dream while I have my home in frozen Edmonton. It got warm for a good week, unseasonably warm - it was fantastic! But short lived as even now, beginning of May, there is snow. But I digress.

Since I could not complete my scrappy quilt, I decided to make one of my quilt sketches I had created a couple of months prior. I hoped to make a quilt featuring my pets for each season. After doing this first one, I have lost some steam while I had many fabric dramas. More on that in a bit, the quilt itself has changed from my sketch to a real life creation and I have to say I am pretty proud of it so far. Originally I thought it would be one large panel, but it has expanded to one big panel and three smaller panels. The smaller panels showcasing each animal separately. Here is a picture of the large panel:
