I wanted to use browns and khakhi greens (being two of my favourite colours) and found some material in my stash that I thought would go well. The bird panel was a perfect match and I absolutely loved the apple fabric (although I'm not sure what it is, Metro Apples perhaps?).
I wanted the quilting to be fairly modern and so i did random straight lines, which were very fun to do. I haven't mastered free motion quilting yet - mainly because the sewing machine I have is a 1930s Singer with a hand-driven wheel so I only ever have my left hand to feed/move the quilt sandwich. Even still, I'm pretty pleased with the effect.
I used bright red fabric for the binding as I thought it brought out the colours of the panels really well.
Stitched in Color. Fingers crossed, eh?
I'm giving this as a birthday present for my soon-to-be brother-in-law. Hope you like it too!
