Cotton fabric as the base, transparent paint for eye, beak & legs, embroidery floss for body, head and wings. Although this portion will be embroidered, it will be appliqued on a background for the Colorado Themed Special Exhibit at the Firehouse Quilts 7th Annual Quilt Show in Castle Rock CO July 29 & 21, 2012.
What was your inspiration?
Sandhill Cranes migrating north through Colorado at Monte Vista. Went to the festival a couple of weeks ago. We got to see them very close up while they were feeding in the fields.
The quilt show is July 20 & 21-mistyped it the first time.
What are you most proud of?
the eye-I used transparent paint to make his eye, beak and legs.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Work on it for several hours, every day to see it progress quickly.
