5 color art quilt challenge completed

I decided to use needle felting for a bird nest. It looked like the bird was just floating in air so I added the nest.  I used purple and orange wool to needle felt a nest. Very fast and easy to do with a needle felting tool from Clover. I also added green leaves to the quilt using apliquick tools to turn under the edges. My first few practice leaves did not turn out well. It takes some practice to learn how to use the tools.  I made 11 leaves using this technique.  I used a blanket stitch on my sewing machine to stitch on the leaves.  This was a fun piece to play with using only 5 colors and different designs for the 7 squares. I like the piece even though I didn’t use my favorite colors for the quilt. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
