White-Throated Sparrow
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

45.5" w. x 29.75" h.
White throated sparrows visit our feeder frequently in the Winter, and this one liked to perch just outside our window on our bushes, so I photographed him, transferred the image to fabric, then free-motion machine embroidered the bird, and using several layers of wool batting, created the bird in trapunto and then quilted the rest of the piece.
