Oh Geez! The pressure of a first post! I did a collaborative project with a friend of mine, Jayme from RAWR creatures. She did the adorable little birdie and I did the quilt. The whole thing was inspired by the cute bird fabric in Anne Kelle's Urban Zoologie collection. It's one of those projects where you find the fabric and create a project to give you an excuse to use it. Anyway, the colors all came from there. I had to get the fabric from Etsy because my local fabric store is terrible and doesn't have it. Also, they give me dirty looks when I go in there. Must be my husband's mohawk.
This is quilt #5 or so and they do seem to be getting better each time which I guess is progress. I should probably take a course but again, dirty looks. For now will settle for the self-taught method which has worked thus far.
