Upside Downy
by Barbara Barrick McKie

9.5" w. x 8.875" h.
A Downy Woodpecker often visits our suet feeder, and I take many pictures of our winter visitors. Asked to do a demonstration of my thread painting for In Stitches, I made this quilt. The publication should come out some time in 2011.
2-3 layers of wool batting create a trapunto effect, and free-motion machine embroidery enhances his feathers. Free-motion quilted,. Disperse Dyed polyester and cotton border and backing.
A demonstration of how I made this quilt is featured in In Stitches Volume 3 Emagazine from Interweave A link to where to purchase it is here.
