Mini birds quilt - Mondvögel

It looks like the rising moon - oh,a name came to my mind:

"Moonbirds" - that's it - Mondvögel.

The running-stitch-birds got company -

with bread-crumbs - French knots - around

and the whole little quilt looking like this:


It is nearly square but not on this photo.

It is made by reverse appliqué.

You know probably how this works:

Two fabrics right sides together, sew a circle or any shape, cut it out and

turn it around. Right sides are now on top.

This made a round frame -

... and place your stitching or whatever you want underneath.

See you soon!
