My granddaughter loves birds, and I happened to find a beautiful fabric panel with birds.
After consulting with Cindy, at Las Colchas, I designed and pieced the fabric panel and cake layers to present the perspective of looking out a window and capturing the beauty of seeing the birds on the tree.
I was referred to Irene for long arm quilting services. Irene guided my choice of quilting design and thread color, which added to my learning experience. She also perked my interest in the long arm machine.
Acquired/Improved Skills: Creating my own design, how to use layer cake fabric, piecing and matching corners, cutting triangles from a square, hand quilting the center panel of birds, adding the binding
