The bird below is another project that I have been working on recently. For a small donation I received a piece of hand dyed fabric with the outline of a bird screen printed onto it, you could then embellish, quilt, embroider, or applique the piece of fabric. I decided to applique some velvet and silk on my bird, I also used some variegated thread to machine embroider the body, then I trapuntoed the bird, quilted it some more then quilted the background. It is going to be part of our Guild display at our Festival of Quilts in November.
A family of Kookaburras in the neighbour's gum tree (to hear a kookaburra calling click here you might need to turn the volume up a bit). It was quite noisy that day as there were more kookaburras in the nearby trees and it seemed as if they were having a competition but in reality I think it was a territorial dispute.
