Red Bird and Berries

I have busy with many things, some of which were gifts so I haven't been able to share a lot.  We visited my parents in High Point, NC last weekend and I gave them their gift.
I saw this quilt on Pinterest several years ago and immediately was smitten.  Sometime after that I started following Karen Miller on IG.  She lives on Keuka Lake which caught my attention as I'm from Rochester, NY and had a good friend that had a cottage on Keuka Lake and used to go there in High School.  Anyway, it turn out she created this pattern for Moda Bake shop.  So here it is.  
I used McTavishing for the background and hand appliqu├ęd the bird, stems and berries.  Such a fun project.  There's also a second project in the works, I'll share soon.
Here's the second one, love the gray stems!  
Hope everyone is trying to enjoy these last few days before Christmas morning.
