This is my first entry in the series of quilts I call “Book of Birds.” There are two sets of birds in flight in this piece: green birds with “wings up,” and red birds with “wings down.” I think the difference creates subtle movement.
The red and green fabrics are primarily Christmas fabric (because it’s what I have on hand). I used 6-7 fabrics of each color.
The gray background also contains shapes that interlock with the birds. I’ll show you next time.
Otherwise, this piece is ready for quilting.
