Day 2 Art Challenge

Todays pieces are new pieces.  The first is made of some of the birds from last year’s 60 day bird challenge.  They were are all made from scraps.   This piece is not quilted yet.   The second piece is a 20 by 20 postage stamp.  This piece is from the class I took with Hollis Chatelain this past fall.  The entire piece is painted with dye on cloth.  The batting and backing were added and I did extensive thread painting on the bird. Next I sketched the bark of the tree and the lichen.  The back ground was free motioned stitched.  The spanish moss was made by stitching on water solvable stabilizer  Then each piece was washed and dried and appliquéd to the quilt. . The lettering and edges were made using the satin stitch.
