Hummingbird Quilt - Hand Applique

Tonight I finished the hand applique hummingbird quilt which I began in a class with David Taylor last August in New Hampshire. 

David provided his pattern, the background fabric and the fabric for the hummingbird. The hummingbird appeared to be so intent on something that I decided to add a flower to the lower right corner and also used a green wood fabric to create a frame for the piece.

I mentioned in the last post that I had used a hera marker to create the crosshatch pattern. When it came to quilting the frame, I used a quilting bar. I made my first quilt in 2003, but this was the very first time that I had ever used it. So simple . . .  who knew????
