Ever since I got back from North Carolina I am having a hard time getting anything done. I unpack right away, I am tired of living out of a suitcase and want my stuff easily accessible once again! I still don't have the binding sewn down on this quilt, hence the clips running all around it.
It started with me cutting the binding all wrong,. Yes I chopped them off so I could not sew them together. Urrgh!
The wings on the bird are from the same piece of fabric and I like the look.
The leaves don't look so blue in real life, I love the stripes!
These started out as lolly pop type flowers. When it was up on the design wall they looked like giant red blobs. I took some scissors and free hand cut them so they would look a little bit more homey.
My husband said their house is mostly red and blue! I think this will work.
I was feeling a little wifey today so I made Bob his favorite cookies, oatmeal raisin. This will make him happy when he walks through the door.
How is this for cute? I got some plans for it, now I just need to kick myself into gear!
Statistics on the bird quilt:
Background is quilted with random straight lines first. I used Aurifil and set my Bernina on 4 stitch length using my walking foot.
The stems and leaves were fused down next and quilted using a free motion foot.
The bird and then the flowers were fused down last and quilted using a free motion foot.
Quilt size is 14 x 21
Design is my own.
