The Denton Quilt Guild has issued a challenge to make a 15" square quilt with the theme "Birds'. I found this great photo by my friend Thomas Judd and asked him if I could base my quilt on his image.
I fused the background fabrics to batting and quilted it. I painted the cranes with acrylic ink on PDF muslin. When they were dry I ironed Wonder Under to the back and cut them out. After I fused the birds to the background, I added the reflections with fabric market and fused fabric. I quilted the cranes and the reflections. I fused the binding to the quilt and added embroidery stitches to the binding.
