Birds of a Feather

I recently created 12 mini quilts. These all measure 6" square. I worked on these over a period of time this past fall. I hadn't shared them with you before this (well maybe a sneak peek) because they were gifts.  




Machine pieced, free-motion quilted, thread sketched, painted

I sent these to all the members of the Twelve by Twelve group. I feel so blessed to be part of this group and I was thrilled to have met so many in person when I went to Houston in November. I enjoyed making this quilt series and while working on them I would think about how connected the Twelves have become over the years we've worked together.

I hope my little Birds of a Feather series brings you a smile.

  18. These are so whimsical and playful. wonderful idea for gifts for your Twelves. I see the pieced background, but what did you use for the drawings? fabric paint and pigma pens?
