Was sort of stuck after my last art quilt....nothing coming to mind to inspire me to begin a new piece. When this happens I always go to the birds. Birds inspire me and I have thought of doing a Puffin for a long time. I love how graphic the markings are on this bird. I have had this in my "Ideas" folder for a while and it appears today is that day to make him into art.
So I made my background and border and quilted them both.
I had sketched the puffin first so knew how big to make the blue background. Now I will begin to make this beautiful bird with the happy kind eyes.
