I Never Saw a Purple Bird...

























PURPLE CROWNED NIGHT BIRD

Another silly bird for my quilt group challenge:

 This one was also made from scraps, and I love the process of applying the feathers one by one.  It's all fused, and I will do a little quilting, just to keep the bird from moulting.

I love the background; it's a piece of  hand-dyed from an early batch I experimented with. The challenge was to make a piece that is not a rectangle, and that has non-traditional binding. These edges are just turned in and sewn together, and I will put lots of beads on. I will also put some beads and quilting on the big wing. 

Again, I just needed to take a break from serious stuff, and have fun  for a few days.
