Quilled Baby Gift

We brought our baby girl home last August and this is the first piece I have quilled since before her birth. I’ve turned down a couple orders over these months, but couldn’t resist doing this one as I got to quill a tree and bluebirds! It was fun to put together, but I think this may be the only one I do again for awhile. Perhaps the quilling will come out again this summer when things slow down a bit…

I’ve removed the last name and birthdate (day) for privacy; I’m sharing that so it is not assumed that the red bird is randomly floating in the air. The fox was a first for me and the dog in the grass is based on a photo of the family’s dog. Of course, the 3 bluebirds in the tree represent the happy family. 🙂
