Bird Quilts are still on my mind,
and thought that I would share with you all one of my latest creations. This has been done for a while, but I'm just getting around to sharing the bird and the process.
The bird is hand painted on muslin with luminere fabric paints, and then machine quilted with embroider thread by sewing very close to each row of stitches in the painted colors. The beak is machine embroidered. The background fabric has also been hand painted. I used batiks to frame the bird on the diagonal. I used a traditional border with orange as the perfect contrast for the other colors used in the quilt. Machine quilting completes the piece. Let me know how you like my way of interpreting this little bird.
