I made this quilt top using a "Botany" jelly roll and machine appliqued the bird's using Bari's design. I enlarged the pattern a couple of times to make it look as though the birds are flying off into the sunset or maybe the sunrise.
I plan to try quilting this quilt myself using some of my decorative stitches on my machine and some of the bright colored Aurifil thread I used to applique the birds. Machine quilting is new for me so it will probably be a slow process and I did not expect to complete that part of the project before the hop.
The bright colors in this quilt top are not what I usually use but I will be using more fun colors in the future.
In a post I wrote a few days ago I mentioned a book I bought recently called Redwork With A Twist by Pat Sloan and right away I spotted a bird project I just had to make for this hop. I used scraps of French General fabrics to make this fun pincushion, it is about 7 inch square.
I will choose a winner, using Random.org, from all of the comments when the hop is over and this little bird pincushion can fly to a new home.
I hope you are enjoying the hop. Visit all of the blogs on the list below to see what the other birds are out there. Have fun!
