Two nights ago I had a dream of a rainbow-colored, checkered bird flying over a gray landscape.
Somehow it seemed the perfect image to add to my latest wall hanging. So this morning I drew the bird from my dream with my sewing machine. Then I cut out the image and laid it over a piece of an old quilt that someone sent me.
I cut the bird out of the quilt.
Something I hadn’t considered was the backing of the quilt. Blue with red roses, it almost seemed the shadow of the bird. I cut out a couple more and pinned them to my quilt. Making them fly up and across it.
