What materials did you use? 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.

Thank you. Although it is going to be part of a quilt, it is all hand embroidered, and fabric paint created the eye, beak and leggs.

Thanks Sarah, he will be appliqued onto a beautiful sunset background and quilted for our Colorado theme at the Firehouse Quilts Show July 20 & 21, 2012. Are you local?

Wow, that looks incredible! I wish I could see where he ends up but unfortunately I am not local (I'm from Australia). I hope you are able to post a photo of him on the completed quilt, I would love to see it!
