More fabric collages with birds

DSCN8737               Okay – so here are 2 more fabric collages with birds.  I am having lots of fun making these collages.  It is fun to use scraps of fabric, fabric panels, and applique pieces to create a new collage.  I had a fabric panel of stamps with birds, flowers, dragonflies, bees, and butterflies.  So I have used parts of these stamps in my collages.  I have learned that it works better if I quilt my background fabric design first before I start adding other fabric to the collage.  I had fun cutting up selvages to make the bird nest. I used a piece of burlap for the tree trunk.  I can’t wait to make more fabric collages.  I will use these collages with birds in a wall hanging about birds.  I almost have enough blocks to make the wall hanging.  I will use a “quilt as you go” technique to put the blocks together.  Keep having fun sewing and creating.  Donna         DSCN8740
