6 Little Birds

So, I’ve been enamored of birds for awhile now…here’s my latest flock:

6  little birds - 10" x 20"
6 little birds - 10" x 20"

As you can see, I went with the the more detailed background – I was worried that the birds would blend in, but 1) I used bright colors and 2) I forget that the dark lines I free motion quilt around them also help with definition, so I’m a happy gal!

I’ve been trying to be more sketchy and free style with my bird shapes – I’m getting there.

EDIT: Note to self – take a look at the pictures you snap along the way, you may remember something you liked! I just scrolled down to the previous post and I love the line of the grass/horizon there than it is in the final product! Too late now! And this was just the shpae of the edge of the fabric…oh well 🙁

  1. The birst are great!! And they do look wonderful on that more interesting (in my opinion) background!! Love how you sign the piece also.

  2. Whoa, that new house you made with the flowers on it, you know the one I’m talking about? Amazing. Wow. Ok, my son’s birthday is on Sunday and I’m making him a quilt inspired by your tie dyes (I’ll give you credits on my blog when I post it 🙂 Wish me luck!
