Christmas Kiss!



Ever since I did Terri Stegmiller's "Paper Quilting Exploration" course I have been looking for an excuse to do more of this technique and especially more birdies ;0)

Well my chance was on this quiltie to Pam via Unlimited Textiles.
The theme was Winter Wonderland and I chose to do these two little robins.


The background is fabric paper using tissue and fine fabric, the robins are made from scrapbook paper.
I used a couple of strands of fancy wool for the branches and free machined spines to look like fir tree branches.
A twinkling, solitary star looks down and sari ribbon makes the frame.
The quiltie measures 5 inches square.

Merry Christmas Pam!

Your quiltie is adorable. I'm finding also that I enjoy working more with paper and fabric together. It is lots of fun.
Wish you Happy Holidays!! (Felices Fiestas)
