BIRDS GO TO NEW HOME

In my quest to give all my family members quilts it came around to my youngest sister Pam .
Only problem being , she is not a great lover of patchwork ( or wasn't ) .
She is a painter & film maker and began to describe a quilt that seemed to me impossible to create.
Think here brocade upholstery fabric & such like.
I found a pattern I thought she might like , simple but graphic.
I let her loose in my stash & this is the result.
I'm glad to say she loves it & so do I !
It is winging it's way south as we speak to her home in Melbourne .
It was professionally quilted by Cathy Davies in an all over whip style meander & picked up just in time to be taken home with Pam .
Backed in a pink & green Amy Butler print







check back tomorrow to see winner of Sewn Launch Party giveaway , I'll email the winner with the news .
Ooops .... giveaway is June not May . So see above but June 8th.
thanks One Flew Over ;-)

Lorraine, it's just lovely. I just can't believe you're the same girl I've seen glue diamante strip onto a headpiece because you couldn't/wouldn't sew it. ROFLMAO

Lorraine said...

Kate ... yes it is the same "girl " !!
I was queen of the glue gun !!
I find it equally as amusing .

I love those birds, I seem to be seeing those on quilts quite a bit, I may have to do one.

Pam said...

Oh I love this quilt. I have always enjoyed anything with birds and this is truly perfect.

I found your blog on the Sewn giveaway list and enjoyed looking around. :)
