Birds are ready to fly

Kiwi and Tara-iti

I have finished my New Zealand birds quilt, officially titled:  "Kiwi and Tara-iti".  And this means I have added my label to the back, a hanging sleeve and the binding.  I used a contrast binding fabric matching that tiny piping in the border and now I'm not sure if I like the binding or not.  I have to look at it for a while - if it still bothers me later on, I would have to take it apart and redo it!  Horrors!  It's looking better and better every minute.

If you can zoom in, you will be able to see the expert machine quilting - done by Lisa Arndt.  Note the details she did on each bird.  Just beautiful.

This quilt will be on display at the Your Arts Gallery Applique show May 14 and 15.  Check the website for directions and details:
