A few weeks ago I mentioned I've been testing some paper piecing patterns for the incredibly talented Juliet.
As luck would have it the timing was perfect! At at the time I was wondering what to do as a gift for my SIL whose favourite NZ bird is a fantail...
And I knew just the fabric for the bird and for a cushion cover. Taking care with the colours, fabric choices and running pretty low on some of the quantities... a fantail cushion cover came together. Some handquilting to compliment and add texture, and off it went to its new home. Yay :)
What's your favourite bird? Have you incorporated it in your creations before?
Our sponsor for September is the fantastic Make Cafe. They have a great online shop and so many delicious goodies! Stay tuned for details on a great giveaway for you lovely players this month : )
Looking forward to seeing your inspiring makings this week.
