Bodega Bay

 Do you know where Bodega Bay is?  

It's in Northern California - a beautiful spot where the hills meet the Pacific.

It's also the place where the movie "The Birds"  was filmed.

So - when I began to work on this vintage tablecloth, i lived in California, and gave it this name because of the beautiful birds embroidered on the cloth.

Do you see the bird?  

I believe this tablecloth is a Madeira cloth, appr 50 inches square.  I have been working on it for 5 years, with lots of stops and starts.  

Next weekend it will be off in the mail to its first competition - the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza.   

Good luck, Bodega !!!
