Most of the pictures I took were pictorial quilts. I love them yet I’ve only made a couple of them. It stretches my box and takes me a long time. So I study how the effect was accomplished.
Since birds are a favorite subject of mine, here’s some of my favorites.
I love the background of the owl. Wonder if that was improvised piecing. The branch had a lot of texture perhaps accomplished with that product that shrinks when you heat it.
The next bird was painted on silk (not in my bag of tricks). Look at the effect of the stitching.
The flamingo is incredible but also the background quilting.
More pictorial quilts next time.
Thanks for stopping by.
