The Big Bird

This big bird I plan to use in my classes has been quilted, and I think it's terrific.

 Here's the back. I loved this color chart of fabrics.

I used the same fabric as in the wing of the bird for the hanging sleeve on the back.

I'm going to use this pinkish batik that has been in my stash for ages as the binding.

The big bird block is 24" tall by 26" wide.

The talk at the Monadnock Quilter's Guild last night went very well. Before the talk I walked around the town. This building housed a yoga studio. I thought the mural was gorgeous.

If you want to make your own birds, you can get my tutorial here, at my Etsy shop. It's an instant download so you can get started right away.
