I have to say, if I hadn't told you all on Monday that I would have my bird quilt top done by today, I don't know if I would have made it! So thanks to you for keeping me from procrastinating. I haven't been feeling quite well, but I managed to get it done.
I really like it! But I'm still unsure if it's giving the effect that I wanted. In fact, I'm counting this as a finish because of all the work that has gone into it - but, I may add a dark border around the whole thing, so that it really looks like a window in a wall, looking out into a tree full of birds. Here's a close-up of the window panes.
Any thoughts on another border? I'm going to bind it in a red and white polka dot (why yes, the Amy Butler dots, of course!)
And just for fun, this is how I hung it. I really wish I had an honest-to-goodness clothesline.
