Little Bird

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I don't live near a town so I've had to make do with an old linen table mat which was really, really soft. I probably should have spray starched it first. I have limited to cotton threads so I used rayon for my berries - not nearly as nice to sew with as the cotton thread.

Absolutely charming - I LOVE your little birdie!!! Am definitely signing up for this FUN class!!!
QuiltzbytheSea answered:
Thank you. It is a great class. I just need to really learn to take my foot off the throttle :-)
Hodge Podges Un asked:
Did you use variegated thread for the bird? or did you do a color layering technique?
QuiltzbytheSea answered:
I used variegated thread (cotton) except for the eye which is black cooton and the fruit which is two strands of slightly different red rayons.
