Quilting master Bethanne Nemesh has created a delightful scene from the Australian rainforest using dense quilting motifs to hint at the forest with its shimmering filtered light and richness of the earth. Aboriginal motifs are also hinted at as part of the border on her quilt, Homecoming.

Homecoming was on display at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.

You can learn how Bethanne works her magic in Show 2107: Extraordinary Binding Techniques and Amazing Fabric Collage.

AMAZING, living here in Aus I can practically hear the screeches coming from the birds. Yes, they screech not sing.

I agree with hmastro, I owned a Cockatoo years ago and the first thing I thought was that eye is perfect! The whole quilt is absolutely fantastic! Makes me want my Cockatoo back!

So stunning and original = absolutely beautiful. Love your use of yarns and your quilting in the background. The two birds are marvelous.
