Quilt Documentation # 132
This quilt is the result of one of Northern Ontario Fibre Artist's mini workshop. Whenever our group meets, one of more of our members demonstrates a technique or application and then everyone gets to play and experiment.
I cut out the shape and fused the 7½” painted squares side by side on black printed fabric.
The black at the edge of the wings and the head were cut out of ultra suede.

I used the little semi circular pieces that I cut out of the wings on the centre of the body.

The quilting was free motioned using black, grey and gold thread and a row of heavy gold thread was hand stitched at the edge of the wings.
