bushtit on cloth

So, I'm clearly into birds this week! Here's my bushtit drawing on cloth. I used Melanie Testa's technique of drawing onto tracing paper, pinning the paper to fabric (and batting and backing) and, with my sewing machine, stitching on the lines. (I don't know how to free motion quilt, so this is with my feed dogs up and regular sewing foot.) Then I filled in some of the shapes with layers of tulle, also a Melly technique. It's not finished, I'll keep you posted.


  1. Lovely interpretation!

  2. All your bird drawings are so wonderful and lively! And a nice work on cloth, too!

  3. I love the simplicity of this! Just gorgeous!
