    Here are pictures of a future group called Quail Run. (Anybody know what kind of quail these are?)

    I think the grassy ones would be wonderful in beach-theme quilts too.

    What do you think of these?

    I'm a city girl--never seen a quail. I love the sky and grass fabrics but not sure if I would use the birds.
    I love when you post future fabrics-thank you.

    This fabric line reminds me of my "Poppy". We use to have quail that lived in the brush line that devided his property from the road. He use to love seeing them.

    Do quail come to eat at backyard birdfeeders? We don't have quail in my area - at least not that I know of.

    Those are California quail. The one with the little feather on his head is the male . The one without the feather is the hen. There is also another one with the feather on the head called Gamble quail. But that one has some blue and green feathers around the face and neck.

    Oh Man! I am currently making chair cushions and table topper from fabric with a different game bird on it. Couldn't find any quail fabric and I really wanted it as we have quail art in the dining room.

    DH used to hunt them when we lived in SoCal. And we loved to eat them so the dining room was the right place for the quail art - admire their beauty and tastiness at the same time LOL

    I'll have to get some when it's available!

    Quail usually are in small little herds so to speak - and they love to hide in the bushes and when you get close they all fly out at once - scares the daylights out of you. I think they eat off the ground usually grass seed or such - the babies are really cute - they look like fluffballs with little tiny legs - I like the fabric.

    There are also some Bobwhites pictured :) Several of my friends raise them for meat, though a permit from the state is required.

    Might the quail be ptarmigans rather than quail. They look a little big for quail. Beautiful fabrcics...do any of them come in flannel?

    Great quail fabric and the grasses, sky, etc, are perfect for a little wall hanging I want to make for DH with lighthouses. When does it become available?

    Here's a good site showing the different quail species. Pretty little bird.

    PS - no these aren't ptarmigan.
    Below is a pic of ptarmigan.

    I really love these fabrics. My husband is a hunter of quail, and other game birds and he would love something made from these.

    I see bob white and California valley quail. I really like the sky fabric and the rocks. They would be great in some art quilts! :thumbup: :D

    I like the grasses and sky - not much for animals or feathered fowl prints.

    Neat. Developing a quilt for grandson of wildllie, but had not thought about quail. Midwest quail have almost diappeared due to losing cover and lack of grain seeds to eat through the winter months. Same with the pheasants. Possiblities are endless with the material and imagination. Beautiful pieces.
