Birds on a Wire
Hello everyone! Today I would love to share with you the news of my very first AccuQuilt guest blog post, featuring my “Birds on a Wire” easy applique design. This fun project utilizes the GO! Bird die and can be used a wall hanging or as a super cute table runner.
The applique birds were fun and easy to make. You’ll find that this GO! Bird die is the perfect size for using your charm squares. Or using up some of your small scraps!
From my front yard, I will often see a row of birds resting along the power line. And I knew this GO! Bird die would be ideal for transferring this picture to fabric. The backing, binding and bird fabrics are all from the Robin’s Egg collection by Island Batik.
I used a tight zig-zag stitch to appliqué my birds onto the background. Then I quilted this runner with my walking foot in organic wavy lines along the length, using plain white Guetermann polyester thread on top and in the bobbin.
For the backing I chose this print because of the colours and the texture. Reminds me of a blue alligator, but I love how it makes that binding pop!
