My New Neighbors

Yesterday I finished my Quilt. "My New Neighbors". I am pleased with it, but can see where I would do things differently if I was to do it again. The background is in the style by Gloria Loughman. She is from Australia and  I just love her work. The white egret is from a pattern I bought many years ago from Connie D. Roys.  A Pine Meadows Design. I just embellished it a little. The birds flying in the background are photos that I printed on to fabric and fusion on to Timtex and than with a little gel medium glued them to the background. The grass is floppy and that is the way I want it. Just tack down here and there.
