A Birdy told me....

It's time to show my creation for the It's for the Birds blog hop. Before we get to that, I want to thank Mary for being our cheerleader, Madame Samm for her inspiration and our sponsor Clothworks La Cage au Birdie .


I had seen a drawing similar to this hanging at a friends house and thought I would try to recreate it. This is my first attempt at machine quilting. I hand appliqued the rooster and chick, then used a stitch in background that reminded me of chickens and a straight stitch in the border. This is a 12 inch finished mini quilt on my Ackfeld table top hanger. I am pleased with how it turned out.




Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit all the creators for today:
