I looked at several eagles in the Album Quilts of Ohio's Miami Valley and they were pretty primitive, not at all like the sampler eagle of Anita's. So, here's my version from Electric Quilt.
Reading the book the eagle block is what drew the author in and made these so familiar to one another. Many had embroidery from the mouth to a banner. Mine is not appliqued and not sure it will be, but I'm ready to add it if I want to. I love making eagles and have made many. After making this one I wasn't sure it would go with the other sampler blocks I made.
After seeing them all together I don't think it looks too bad. I'm going to replace my drunkards path and add that to my orphan block quilt. I am not liking it at all.
Karen and Cathy are making the Ohio sampler too! See their work HERE and HERE.
