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.
