Hummingbirds -Finished!


Its been a while since I posted about this and I've only shown snippets.
I am very happy to say that this piece is now finished.


 It measures 27" x 35" and is bound with a plain dark blue cotton.  Sorry I don't have a photo of the edges.



I have used the traditional; method of trapunto ( ie, stuffing from the back) to fill out the body of the birds.
They were sagging a little and needed it!




The border is made up of crumb blocks and the whole piece was free motion quilted on my domestic machine.


 These photos were taken in direct sunlight - I love how it shows up the quilting and the texture of the hand embroidery on the birds.




It is now packed away and ready for my display.  I'm working like a crazy woman and will have lots to show you over the coming weeks/months.  
'Til the next time.....
Happy Stitching
Rhianon.

Rhiannon this is amazingly beautiful work! You are so very talented. The entire layout with the birds, flowers and background makes for a spectacular display. Not to mention your grand FMQ. Tell me did you stuff the birds between the appliqué and the appliqué background? Or between the appliqué background and the backing? They came out perfectly. Love the flowers as well. Thanks for sharing and inspiring! Karen on Keuka
