Quilted Birds

This week I have been in my Stitch Studio making funny birds. We are having a snow event in Southern Indiana...very unusual for us....and I'm staying inside to make quilted birds and some leaves and berries.

I designed the bird using four appliqué pieces that are fused to a backing fabric which is also the torso of the bird....added a fused beak. Then, I quilted the bird and cut him out. 

Next, I realized that I could stitch leaves and berries in the fabric surrounding the, I did.

This is joyous play! Now, I am thinking of the branches and backgound for the birds....I'll let you know when that happens!

Enjoy the Process!

Hi Terry,
Trying to find out if you are still providing classes. I have your 2 classes on Craftsy. I have had them for several years. Love your videos and how you explain thread deliveries. Really like the little practice designs you have provided in both those classes. Found a video about your classes to be on Gumwork but the link was closed. Are you still teaching?
