First up was 'little birds' which was an evening workshop. I made one of these last year after seeing it in her talk and used her curly wurly tree shape.
I would have been happy to do the same again but she brought a different, spikier tree design which she said she'd created specially for our workshop. All the fabrics and templates were provided and we had a choice of which ones to use for the birds.
Gradually rows of trees and birds emerged and, by the end of the evening, we'd all completed the design to take home to quilt.
I really liked Liz's latest samples which included small flowers, so I later added daisies from one of my own fabrics.
Are you ready to see the final design? Ok, here come the birds...
I'm really happy with the result again. It was such a good evening - so satisfying. You could easily make this little quilt in an afternoon and that's sometimes what I need in the middle of bigger projects to keep my enthusiasm going.
The second workshop was yesterday and I'm still buzzing! I'll probably show you in a couple of weeks when it's been quilted.
To finish though, here's a real bird, a Nuthatch from a walk in the woods a couple of weeks ago :)
Enjoy the last few hours of the weekend. x
