Bird buddies

Burton is giving me stink-eye because I’ve been sewing birds again.

Before we move, I wanted to make something special for neighbour Krista. She has two African Grey parrots (Abby and Baby Girl, and it wasn’t hard to adapt the Rainbow Lovebird pattern to African grey colours.

I don’t have the time (or enough grey fabric) to make a full quilt, so this is just a wall hanging. It’s going up to Mom’s so she can fancy quilt it. She’s going to have fun quilting around those hearts, because as you can see, they are a little on the wonky side. I decided to add the on last minute, and I was totally flying by the seat of my pants while making them. Hopefully they don’t cause her too much trouble!

    Beautiful! Two grays? Wow….I can imagine how that sounds. I sure miss mine and all the noise she used to make especially whenever I was on the phone.

    What a fun surprise for your friend! I’m sure your mom will do a lovely job with the quilting. And btw, wonky hearts are the best!

    What a special gift for your friend. It is just beautiful and the hearts on each side just enhance the appearance. Looking forward to seeing your Mom’s magic quilting.
