Julie's Bird Dance Quilt
Happy Tuesday quilt lovers! What a lovely long weekend it was, the weather wasn't the best for beach goers but it was still nice to have a long weekend. Maybe you worked in the garden, or had family gatherings, a spot of time at your sewing machine perhaps? Today I want to share with you Julie's Bird Dance quilt. Julie and are blogging buddies and met through me quilting her sister Janine's Bird Dance quilt earlier in the year. See *here* for Janine's Bird Dance quilt.
Julie and Janine (no blog) joined together to make themselves each one of these spectacular Sue Spargo quilts. Janine lives in Australia and Julie here in New Zealand. Both quilts are similar but with subtle differences in the birds and fabrics but is the most noticeable difference between the two quilts is the borders. Janine's had an applique vine with berries.
Julie wanted her borders left plain so I could do some of my "Feathery Flourish Quilting" .......Julie's description!
Julie chose a lovely backing fabric and got me to supply the wool batting.
To see more pop over to Julie's blog as she has more photo's of the quilting and bird details and the a photo of the quilt with it's binding on.
More quilts still to share, so please pop back, until then......................
