Day 46 – Songbirds
Happy Birthday Myra!
This picture was taken a couple of years ago in Toronto at a Trend Tex Trade show. Myra in her element…with bolts and bolts of fabric!
As Myra did for my birthday a few weeks ago, I will do the same. To celebrate Myra’s birthday, for any one that posts a “happy birthday” comment on the blog, your name will be entered in a draw for 3.5 yards of Myra’s choice of fabrics.
Day 46 – 100 days of Quilts
Because it’s a special day I thought I would share a very special quilt. (hope you don’t mind Myra)
This quilt is a very special quilt to us. It was a quilt designed with no purpose other than just for fun. It was to be simple yet stunning. We found inspiration in a Martha Stewart wedding magazine. Believe it or not it was a wedding cake with twigs and birds. I know I have a picture of it, if only I could find it. If I do I will post it later. Part of the inspiration was to enjoy the openness of this design, to concentrate on the top of the quilt. But as usual, we would love to use a print in the open area to see how the quilt would change!! You know us, it’s all about options:)
And NO there is no pattern available for it, but it is on the list of things to do. The twigs and birds are hand appliqued by yours truly. I love hand applique, in fact I am taking a break from appliqueing cute little flowers to blog.
This quilt was machine quilted by Jacqueline Pohl, unfortunately this picture does not show it very well.
Myra did not know what I was going to post today, so I am sure she will have some words for you about this quilt.
