Birds on a line

Ever had a project that your liked so much that you are scared to see it done?.. Scared that the next step will mess everything up?
This is that one for me.  I am so happy with how the quilt is coming out that each step seems to be way too close to the end of the process and yet also churns up all sorts of fear that I  will mess it up and not like it after that!  Yes, ~quilter's angst!~

The photo is not the best but my design wall is over a large glass door that was getting lots of light at the time.

Birds on a Wire is a totally original piece directly from the depths of my mind. It's been so much fun to do and now its time for the quilting!

For the back I have chosen to step out of the norm and go with some black ultra suede for it's yummy soft brushed hand and deep color play. To quilt it I am going with some variegated Rainbow Thread from Superior.  The color play in the thread is delicious transition of oranges and blacks that I think is going to look wonderful on the quilt  ( cross your fingers for me ok??)


  1. Very interesting quilt. Can't wait to see it done. Also anxious to see how you like ultrasuede for your backing. Before I got my HQ I had a friend quilt a baby quilt for me with Minkee on the back. I'm sure its not easy with the stretch in it but it sure made a wonderful quilt backing.

    Can't wait to see more pics!

  2. It will be fabulous! Can't wait to see it finished!

  3. Ooooh, this is super spectacular! Love the colours and the fabrics and the design! Really love the birds on lines across the whole thing! Fantastic!

    Looking for Accuquilt tidbits and found you!
