Bird - "Bird: Past Tense"

The minute I got the word "bird," this image flashed into my brain. It must be my warped sense of humor! I had fun drawing it and might do a little series on this guy. Anyone want to help name him?

Not much to this quilt; one of the simpler quilts I have done. The background, white and pink are all unknown fabrics from curtain samples. The quilting was fun, small spirals on the cat and the background quilting is something that I made up...I call it "lightning spiral." If someone else has done this, I don't remember seeing it!

The whiskers are handstitched wool embroidery yarn.

Sorry this was posted too late. Life has a habit of getting in the way. I can't wait to work on the next word, Spring. I already have an idea. Let's just hope I can get this one done before life turns the tables on me once again!

  1. Totally love this!!! While I like birds, I am also a cat owner and see something like this every once in a while.

  2. This guy caused my to laugh out loud. Looks like my kitty when caught dragging our shoes around by their laces in the middle of the night. He looks like a Mortimer to me..."Hey Mort, what ya got?" He is great. Love the color and the quilting...effective.

  3. His ears have the shape of bird wings. Is he trying to fly?? ;-)
    Makes me laugh, a good start in the morning! Thank you.
