Blackbird Embellished Patchwork Art Quilt

A sweet little blackbird created in free-motion machine stitch acts as a central figure in this art quilt. A colourful patchwork background in blue, teal, pink, orange and yellow is covered with lace and frayed cheesecloth (some of which is cut away) and embellished with hand embroidery stitches and buttons.

The blackbird is inspired by a black phoebe bird, with the stitching loose and freeform.
The flowers are created using an embroidery stitch called the drizzle stitch, which creates a textured curly petal.
Overall, this quilt is informal, freeform, and very Folk Art.
