From the Spring 2011 Issue of "Quilts and More"
I had the top sewn together, and Terry quilted it for me. I still had to applique the little bird and sew the binding on. I fused a piece of light weight batting underneath the bird/background applique so that the quilting wouldn't show through. Then I zig zagged along the edges using thread the same color for each piece I appliqued. Terry's technique of sewing on the binding by machine made this project quick to finish.
I didn't have anyone at home to hold it up for me, and it was raining outside so I couldn't throw it over my wooden fence, but it's larger than it seems.
The floral brown fabric, the brown polka dot, the stripes, and the pink print behind the bird came from Hobby Lobby. The other fabrics came from stash. I bought enough of the pink print to do the binding.
Terry free motion quilted the feathers all over.
Sometimes that's all that our UFO's need; just a few minutes here and there, and they would be finished. What I'm really excited about is that I have a present completed weeks ahead of when it's supposed to be given. That rarely ever happens!
You can go see what everyone else was sewing on last night by going here.
Have a great weekend!
