“Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” Henry Van Dyke
This is developed from a pattern by Laura Heine, who has a lovely collection of patterns that she has developed. If you love animal patterns, be sure of check out her website at fiberworks-heine.com. This particular pattern is called “Bird in Hand”. The background is a selection of indigo and tan batiks. The birds are offset in bright Kaffe Fasset fabrics highlighted with contrasting and complimentary batiks. The birds are hand appliqued onto the blocks.
The birds and flowers are then enhanced with fancy machine stitches.
