Thank you Lana over at It Seams To Be Sew and Madame Samm for this fun and creative blog hop. Welcome everyone and if you are new I hope you will stop back. I try and share quilt tutorials and projects and also have a Linky Party every Tuesday. Right now there is a giveaway going on if you link up and……keep reading for another giveaway right here!
Most people are using Beautiful Birds by Tracy Lizotte for Elizabeth’s Studio but I didn’t have the fabrics and…..you know how much I love Island Batik fabrics and my AccuQuilt die cutter so…..for my Tree Bird Hop project I combined the two. I also used a frame that I have had for several years and it is still available from Ackfeld Manufacturing.
I used the die to cut out my first stem and leaves and then I used the leftover piece to cut another stem and then I just freehand cut a couple other pieces. I really like to use every last scrap.
I used my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine which only has a straight stitch so I did a little free-motion wiggle stitching for my applique and did some stippling in the background.
One little bird almost flew away…….there he is!
How would you like to win 5 fat quarters of beautiful batiks called Great Balls of Fire from Island Batik!
