Show and tell… Backyard Birds

Many thanks to the talented Margery Tadder who has shared her lovely quilt with us! She emailed to say:

Being a bird watcher I just had to make a Backyard Birds quilt, and what a cheery addition to my home! I love the bright colors and the happy look of it. It was fun sewing the cute birds although at age 92 my manual dexterity is not what it used to be! So, did resort to machine appliqué on a few of the tinier pieces and circles. I also turned one bird into a magpie because they are so prevalent in my neighborhood.

I love this happy quilt! The addition of the magpie is perfect, and it is well-placed. And I must add that I sincerely hope to be appliqueing when I am 92! Well done, Margery, and thank you for sharing your wonderful quilt with us!
