I have included a little bit of May's block so all of the American Bald Eagle could be seen. This block also features a raccoon. The raccoon is done as an Embroidery Slip and is appliqued onto the block. I used silk embroidery floss to make the raccoon. This block measures 6" by 12" and in the third in the section of six.
Here is a picture of the blocks: April, May and June blocks sewn together.
This block features two birds a Pilated Woodpecker and a Stellar Jay both bids are done in silk ribbon. the foliage is a Maple Leaf Bush. This is the second block in a section of six. This block measures 6" by 12" .
This is the first section of six. Each block measures 6" by 12". The bird is a Peregrine Falcon and is done in silk ribbon. The trees are Sitka Spruce and Douglas Fir trees done in many layers of the Feather Stitch done in 3,5, and 8 Pearl Cottons, to get a full pine bough. Each of the trees are embellished with copper and brass pine cone charms.
