Yesterday I sewed my mini quilt that I started back in January. I have not done much sewing in quite awhile and I don’t think I have ever made a traditional quilt as I am not one to follow the “rules.” So I was very pleased with my results.
First, I cut the fabric into strips and sewed it around my bird:
Next, I added the batting to the middle and cloth to the back to create a quilt sandwich. I quilted the 3 layers by outlining my bird with black thread and using a squiggly stitch around the bird:
I need to finish the edges and embellish it with beads and then I will be ready to submit an image for the Quilting Arts Magazine challenge!
I was thinking about a title for my piece. The bird looks a little like a Penguin to me. But since it is imaginary, I was thinking that maybe I need to make up a name for it.
Pen Guan came to mind. Since I drew it with a pen. The Guan is an actual bird that resembles a turkey. You can see what one looks and sounds like here:
It sounds a little like a barking dog to me…
What title do you think I should give my quilt?
