Tonight was the night to finish it up. I had already added the binding. Now it was time for the finishing touches! I added some felt leaves, attached by embroidery stitches and found a few beads, for eyes, some kind of berries(?) and a red bug.
Here's a close-up to show some detail:
Before I played with my birdie project, I did some "real" quilt shop work, starting with selecting fabric for a new quilt.
I cut out everything I needed for the quilt top, except the borders. The floral will be the border eventually.Then, I MADE myself sit still and sew all 72 triangles needed for the first step.
I used the same method that I showed in a much earlier post and wanted to finish this step so I could remove the tape.
Tomorrow looks like a busy day, but I should make some good progress over the weekend.
