“A Stellar Quilt”

Last night, our guild had the “2015 Challenge” reveal.  24 of us accepted the challenge to create a quilt using N + 1C + Z or neutrals + one color + one zinger.  I was inspired by Pie Lady Quilts.  She has a great tutorial on her birds that I tweeked to be a Stellar’s Jay.  It is matchstick quilted and finishes at 36″ square.

“I’m Talking About the Birds” is the real name of my quilt.  I was finishing it on our trip to the mountain this weekend, so here it is in front of the command center (heard there was a broken leg at the summit of Mt. Hood) as we ended our backpack.Stellar Quilt

    I love it! And the picture with Clyde is perfect. Mom and Dad would have gotten a kick out of this one AnnMarie…I used to laugh at their bird watching until I started doing it myself.

    I think your quilt was stellar!! And should have been a winner! I am totally fascinated with the whites and creams in your background, the birds themselves and of course your clever name!
