A Little Birdy Told Me...

A Little Birdy Told Me
12" x 12" Mixed-media art quilt

I finished this little quilt a couple of days ago.  I need to add a hanging sleeve yet and a label, but that's it.  I love this little birdy.  The three horizontal lines you see on the piece are fabric thread junk that you find in newly dyed fabrics that you pull out of the washer and dryer.  I like to save it because it is so lovely and colorful, just like hand dyed fabrics.  I keep a little plastic dish on the shelf above the washer and just toss them in when I do hand dyed fabrics.  You just never know when you might need some thread junk for a project.

Speaking of hand dyed fabrics...the March 3 Creative Studios guest artist, Brenda Gael Smith, is teaching us shibori.  I'm hoping to find some time soon to give this a try.  It looks like fun.
