I skipped 2 motorcycle rides this weekend in order to make this bird. Totally worth it. I finished the FMQ late Sunday afternoon. The fabric is actually a creamy-beige batik. There is a fire to our East so my world is an odd shade of orange today.
I would be done except I decided that it would really benefit from the texture of a hand-quilted background. This will really stand out after it's washed as it is a cotton batting which will crinkle beautifully as it shrinks.
And from the back. (Medium grey fabric.)
