I didn't think I had anything to show this week but then remembered this little guy.
He is the second one ( remember the purple background?)
The words hermit thrush are quilted in with a gold colored thread.
I really like how the quilting came out. I used a variegated green and yellowish thread that is thicker than what I usually use so it stood out. The fabric I used on the bird didn't really work so I tried painting over it and the results are sort of muddled. Not thrilled about that but it turned out ok so I finished it. I like these little ones hanging from a branch.
Isn't that where birds hang out?
BTW - I'm sitting here this morning smelling my favorite crock pot recipe that I've had going all night. Since quilters like easy and quick I will share it with you. I like it because it's just dump and go, also it's so easy I can remember how to do it.
Here is the original recipe:
White Chicken Chili
I like to put it together the night before and let it go all night on low and I use more broth because I like it more like a think soup. Great for a cold day.
