Quilt Documentation # 157
|Birds of a Feather....|
I have added borders, free motion quilted it and finished it with a facing and a sleeve. Still needs a label.
I also gave it the name “Birds of a Feather” as I have no idea what kind of birds they are, but there sure was a lot of them on the boardwalk in Halifax when I took this picture.
Here are a couple of close-up.
I experimented with using a white bobbin thread on the white cotton back thinking that it would save me changing the bobbins every time I changed colours. It would have been a lot easier to fill and change the bobbins as I had to be very careful with the tension to make sure I didn't get white on the top or dark on the back. In hind sight, I should have thread painted the birds and the rocks prior to sandwiching and quilting.
