Default The Beginnings of a Crayola Quilt

I saw a beautiful crayola quilt in West Virginia from Black Cat Creations. It was of cats sitting in flowers and grasses. I decided to try to use my own original photography of nature, so I chose my bird pictures. I traced them onto a nice muslin, colored, heat set and did some embroidery around them. I have completed 3 and have two more in the works. Just wanted to get some feed back. I'm new to the forum, just joined last month and this is my first picture post.
