Aviary- a wall quilt

This was the fifth and last budgie-come-parrot I made.

Yet again I add a few more pieces to the pattern to 

give it a more colourful look.

I put the quilt top together with some spacers between 

each bird. 

It was tricky getting those in-between perch pieces right!

They look pretty cute with their felt eyes, which I 

blanket stitched on after it was quilted.

I like having a unique quilt hanging on my walls, 

especially one with an Australian flavour to it!

"Aviary" finishes at 12" by 31"

I've set myself a bit of a deadline with my crafting 

other projects.....

knitting a jumper, 

Don't worry, it's much more advanced than this!

hand quilting my Sugar Gum wall quilt and machine,

I'm waiting on Aurifil thread to arrive!

 quilting my 1974 Charm Star quilt.....

The next machine quilting task on the list

because I'm heading overseas in July for a rather 

special family event.

The string quilt may have to wait til August to be finished!

But more on that soon!

Happy days!
