Janine's Bird Dance is a show of colour, beautiful hand stitches and a pure joy! I was delighted when Janine asked me to quilt this lovely Sue Spargo design for her.
This little beauty (35" x 41" ) was so much fun to quilt! Basically I just did my quilt doodling. Janine graciously gave me free range........free range, free hand quilting! Are they free range birds too? They look like they are!
There really is stack loads of embroidery detail, so many different stitches, threads, felts and embellishments.............. some of those embellishments had to be constrained as to not get in the way of my hopping foot! Don't worry no feathers were harmed in this procedure.
Janine made this quilt as a sew-along with her sister Julie. I delivered Janine's quilt to Julie as Janine lives in Australia. It was lovely to finally meet Julie as we have been 'blogging friends' for sometime now. I enjoyed a cuppa and sampled some of her scrummy baking!
Don't you love the backing fabric! It's so perfect!
Thank so much Janine I hope you don't have to wait too long to cuddle your beautiful quilt.
My next quilt?................watch this space and my Instagram and Facebook pages.
