Raw edged fused applique
I have been working on this quilt for a few months and finished it a month ago. I did not want to post it because I planned on entering it in a few shows and first had to find out if they had restrictions on it being shown anywhere. Now that I have decided where I am entering it I learned there are no such restrictions with them. So here it is. I am pretty happy with this one and think it has show potential.
I enjoyed the entire process of working on this one. The colors were inspiring and the theme was just what I love doing. The construction of the birds took some time but I do like how they are captured here and have a bit of a personality to boot.
I chose to add more leaves and imitated the leaves found on the background fabric to somewhat hide them in the foliage. The light is speckled as it works its way through the trees.
The birds are there for the tasty berries but yet are curious about meeting up with each other.
