Quilt of American birds
I made this for DH, years ago, and now we have it on our living room wall. Traced the pictures from a coloring book. I quilted each square as I went along, and my only regret about this quilt is that I used some special Japanese "dyeing crayons" for the colors, so they didn't stand up as well as textile paints. After this quilt, I made two duplicates of it, using textile paints, one for my mother and one for my aunt, but I quilted those by machine to save time.
The birds are stuffed a bit extra, and I quilted all around the pictures, the lines being about 1/4" apart. I had plenty of time that summer, being on a visit to my aunt and mother, because we sat around and talked and watched TV almost all the time.
