Free-motion sewing creates feathers full of texture for this orange fellow, a thread art interpretation of the painting Jolly Bird.
Both pieces are part of the series a little bird told me. The series consists of paintings and art quilts inspired by those paintings. The fabric and thread pieces are created in free-motion sewing, raw edge and reverse applique and hand embroidery. It's a delightful experience revisiting each sweet bird in a new medium.
