Today is my day for the 'Wings' Hop and I was delighted to see this new challenge hosted by Carol. So many ways to interpret this title and let your creativity just go! I tend to think outside the box and I have to use up all those scraps teasing me every day.
I had a zip bag stuffed with full and partial isosceles triangles pulled when this Hop was announced - had to use them.
As you can see, there were all in very different sizes, but I was going to fly by the seat of my pants and make them work for this hop.
Because - there were little birds, butterflies, and dragonflies hiding in these goodies as well.
Since we've had nothing but snow, wind, and ice, I had to rely on indoor photos. My improv take on hidden wings - even some of the white I used had butterflies and dragonflies.
I've had a large piece of Charlie Harper's "Bird Architects" and it was perfect for the back of this quilt.
I had just enough of one of my favorite bias print stripe fabrics for this - golds, rust, yellow, brown - to tie this together both front and back.
Hopefully like the birds build their nests from the mix of twigs, grasses, and leaves - I hope I have woven this mix of leftover scraps into a loved quilt.
'Hidden Wings' was fun to make and a great challenge. Thank you CAROL for making me think outside the box again.
