journal quilt

A bit late but here is my journal quilt for June. All the fabrics I used are my own handdyed ones. The background started out as a dark blue Kona which got discharged and overdyed. I must admit I have never seen a bird with these colors, but I think it is very pretty :-)
The inspiration came from young birds which have left the nest but are still a bit insecure about their flying capabilities and spend quite some time hiding under plants. Size - as usual - 7"x10". Title: Young bird.
