Amy Fisher sent in this photo of her newly finished Birds in Toyland quilt. I love that she embraced the applique, embellishing, and hand quilting to make a wonderful quilt that she and her family are sure to treasure. Read more below…
Of course, life happened… but I finally finished my quilt on Monday. I enjoyed the entire process. I’m not the best hand quilter, but I got better by the end. I had never done well at appliqué, but I got better the more I did. I absolutely loved figuring out how I wanted to embellish each piece. And I loved the embroidery part. I used a turkey stitch on many of the hats. But I would never do the lettering the same again…even though I like how it turned out: all those French knots and beads! Took forever!
