For this challenge, I went "back in time" to my first handmade quilt (12 Days of Christmas) and thought about how I might approach the same project if I were making it today.  So I decided to do a portrait of a partridge, minus the pears.

The background is made from shredded scraps of green fabric under a layer of green organza.  Finished size is 9"x9".  Pretty small for one of our challenges, but I am hoping to continue this into a series.

  1. Your partridge has attitude Kate! What a great way to explore for a new series.

  2. Kate, your work is stunning! I love the eye of the partridge. It’s vivid and powerful. Look forward to seeing the new series.

  3. Wonderful partridge, Kate! I love your stitch work. Can't wait to see the rest of this series!
