Designer: This quilt used a purchased kit from African Folklore Embroidery.

Materials/Techniques: This hand embroidered quilt features a bird of a different color. Bright pearl cotton thread pops on a black background. The rather exotic bird embellished with crystals is the focal object.

Artist Statement: When this group was featured on a TV sewing program, I knew I wanted to make one or more of their quilt block. Since the theme for Feb. is animals, I chose this one to make. I was very pleased with its brightness and originality. In the kit were only gorgeous threads and outlined objects. The color choice and embroidery is the work of the embroiderer. It was a fun challenge.
