UFO- unfinished fabric object- happens to us all. I have a small-ish pile of them waiting for attention and so this one was next! Almost all art goes through a "I love this!" and a "I hate this!" moment from its maker and this one was probably abandoned during one of the latter fits, I really can't remember. It started with a thread painting of the baby cockatiels in their nest.
Next I added a border, then a background for their greater home outside the nest, then stenciled more leaves all about and added branches, etc., to complete their "sanctuary."
Just love the fabulous old roses fabric!
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
