Painted Fantasy Birds Day 2

Here are my fantasy birds flying in to day 2 of my new blog.

Painted with Derwent Intense pencils and blocks ( really great to work with) onto pale coloured cotton fabric and then bands of marble and  patterned cotton used as the sashings.


Free hand drawn with pencil then using the darning foot and the feed dogs down, I free motion machine stitched around the shape.  Outlined with a black fabric pen to give a graphic look to the birds. Then free motion quilted.
Great fun to do .
I have made 12 and they will be made up into a wall hanging with the theme of Gardens.
How many of these delightful silly birds do you see in your garden?
