A Wacky Bird

I took a class with Suzanne Marshall in Ann Arbor last Friday on hand appliqueing.  I made a wacky bird using one of her patterns and then embroidered a swirly tail, head dress, and eye lashes to dress him up a bit.  I took it with a friend and it was alot of fun.  The background for this is one of my hand dyed pieces of fabric that I made a few weeks ago.  I'm pleased with him.  I think he will make a cool bag or pillow.   


  1. I love your bird and oh how fun to take a class with Suzanne Marshall. Her work is delightful and she seems like she would be such an interesting person.

  2. It was fun and she was very encouraging. Her quilts were gorgeous.
