DQS9 quilted

DQS9 quilted
Originally uploaded by nanotchka
I am in the final stages of the quilt I am making for the DQS9 swap. I am still playing with alot of birds and these are perched on limbs with raw edge applique leaves and lots of free motion stitching on the birds and the leaves! The background is HST's in white and soft muted aqua prints. I wanted the background to be pieced, but very subdued so that the bierds could pop along with the brances and leaves....The border is a favorite butterfly print in chocolate brown and white that seemed to be perfect with the rest of the quilt.... I hope it is something that my partner will like...
