Hand Embellished Blue Bird Art Quilt

Combining applique, collage, quilting and hand stitching, this bluebird art quilt is a riot of color.
The blue bird has a lacy maroon colored wing and she stands in a multi-colored marsh. The background consists of horizontal and vertical stitching lines that are embellished with hand stitching details. The edges are strips of frayed silk to counterbalance the more precise lines of the applique and stitching. Surrounded by the collage elements, the bluebird is content to take in her colorful environment.
