Judy's Hummingbird Wallhanging

This project was done as a barter!  The top photo shows the quilt in closer-to-real colors.

My friend Judy had redecorated her house with a wallpaper border that featured a floral and hummingbird theme. 

She gave me a piece of the wallpaper, and I matched the colors in my fabric selections.

To make the wallhanging, I modified the pattern "Hummingbird Stained Glass" pattern by Bear Paw Productions, and the inspiration for the elaborate quilting was from the book "Wild Birds" by Carol Armstrong.  In exchange for the wallhanging, Judy has made a bedside table lamp to match the quilt Rhapsody in Purple.

 

This photo, while quite yellow and not showing the colors properly, does show the design of the hand quilting.
