One of my first exploration into the world of art quilting. It was something I had often thought about trying out, but just didn't think I could manage it. After seeing some pictures in an Art Quilting magazine, I decided to give it a try. For a first time into this world I was really pleased with the outcome.
Drummer Boy was made from a pattern I purchased from Rachel of Stitched in Color. I hung on to the pattern for a good year, then started and stopped until this 2021 to finish it. I will say it took me forever to get it done. But I think it was one of the nicest scrap quilts I have ever made.
This quilt sat for a good year before I finally decided to get it quilted and finished up. The pattern was purchased from The Patchers Menagerie. It truly was fun designing these birds. The pattern gives you basic instructions than it was up to you to personalize those birds. Longer legs, fatter bodies, short or long beaks, just so much fun.
Confetti also was a pattern purchase from Rachel of Stitched in Color. I titled it Covid Insanity. It has almost 2,000 pieces of fabric and 128 paper pieced blocks. With all my guild activities that pretty much locked us down until September of 2021 due to Covid there wasn't much to do but sew.
