Hummingbird Triple Technique Quilt


This quilt is from the Triple Technique class I taught this summer.  My client chose to use a variety of hummingbird embroidery designs.  The fabrics are 1930’s reproduction fabrics and are a charming compliment to the embroidery work.

I outlined the hummingbirds, Irish chain and the flying geese. The background fabric is quilted with a micro stipple using a white poly thread to bring out the embroidery work.  The results are fantastic but I will tell you that the micro stipple was the best tricep workout ever!  It even beat the gym.  My arms were so sore but the results were well worth it.
