My daughter had received some beautiful scrapbook papers from a friend. Included in these papers was a bird and floral motif that I really liked. I decided to create a quilt using the scrapbook paper as my inspiration.
The more I worked on this piece the more it looked like German or Dutch folk art. Still, with my embroidery, and the colors it adds, gave it a Mexican folk art look. I played with negative space on this small quilt. I kind of like it. This quilt took me a week of evenings to complete. The finished size came out to 19″ x 19″. I am really enjoying work on these smaller sized quilts.
