Probably you are already fed up with this one. But a project of this size takes time! Even more so, because we are busy doing things that will not be done when J starts working again. So this is my occupation in the evenings while watching tv. I prepare the patches during daylight and quilt them in the evening.
I found that after discovering the korak technique, I love it more than doing appliqué. This is why there are more korak pieces on the edges than in the middle.
Most of the plain red parts are covered now, and you can see I'm coming close to the finishing phase. I chose a backing fabric and the binding material is waiting ready-ironed and ripped into stripes (I got it from my m-i-l, a heap of strips she could not use. It is the burgundy material next to the bat).
I'm afraid this one looks like eagle and swastika; this is not intended!!
This is a very chaotic and experimental quilt. I applied different techniques and so many colors. And it wasn't planned from the beginning. It is more like a bird collects food, wandering around, picking bits here and there, just having a favourite branch to sleep on and finding his path in a miraculous way. On the other hand, birds create the most faithful and affectionate relationships, having subtle and differenciated tools of communication. They are the grandchildren of the dinosaurs. I just love them.
