When both Emily and I saw this picture of “Bird at Sunset” and pinned it on Pinterest we decided to use it for a quilt challenge. We were to each make a quilt and not let each other know what we were doing until the grand revealing.
So, here she is with her “Bird at Sunset.”
She had bought a silk scarf years ago at a yard sale for a quarter and used it for her background. She said she had offered it to me and I turned her down. Wow! How could I have done that?
She used twine for the fence and unraveled it for the grass.
I like how she turned the bird around to face the center.
Beautiful. Just beautiful!!!
And this is my piece.
I changed the bird to a cardinal, repositioned it, and made holly branches in the foreground.
The background was heavily stitched and then the cardinal, holly, and fence were added and stitched.
I wrapped the quilted top around a canvas frame and stapled it to the back.
