Folded Flock Quilt

flock-brand1

Ooooo it’s been a busy summer.  I made this quilt a while ago and have been meaning to blog about it forever.  But then this morning I got some great news – Folded Flock is going to be in the International Quilt Show’s Modern Quilt Guild showcase in Houston!

This quilt features the Botanics line by Carolyn Friedlander.   The quilting was done on my walking foot.  One large arrow shape echoed many times.

This quilt was inspired by origami cranes and this rug designed by Lesley Barnes. I sketched out my idea on the computer.  Birds and arrows.birds-sketch

 

I made the wings, head, body for my birds and used extra background fabric to flesh them out into rectangular blocks.   I’ve made another post – here – describing more about how I slabbed together fabric to make my bird and arrow blocks!  Thanks for stopping by!bird-paper-2
