Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Hummers

I've always been infatuated with little hummingbirds. Once, when I was still very young, I caught one in my hand as it buzzed around my mom's roses.

It stuck me (as opposed to pecked) me in that soft part of the palm that connects the thumb and forefinger. I think it surprised me much more than hurt. He got away!


Once I got up close and personal with that pretty little fella, I really became curious. No, I didn't try to catch another one. I just look at them as they fly around and at the many pictures available on my "humming, bird" Pinterest board and on the Audubon Society website.

That last one, the white with black frames around the birds, is one I made many years ago because of the fabric, which I really love.
