One of the motifs I’m been working in for the past year or so is birds, lots of birds!
I’ve really wanted to expand my birds to that 3rd dimension. You saw a bit of that in my 3-d birdhouse I was in a rush to make last week:
I’d like to make some birds with real character though. So I thought I’d share that journey with you here! This bird is made from a pattern Terry Grant of “And Sew it Goes” published in Quilt Scene magazine last year. Her birds are FANTASTIC, and I’m so happy to be jumping into the 3-d world. Now that I understand a bit about how a 3 dimensional bird is built, I’m hoping to develop my own style of bird. But here’s my very 1st little 3-d bird, waiting for a house!
