Another bird quilt finished

And another bird quilt has been finished! This one started out as a handdyed piece of fabric which I created in May. On it I used Lumiere textile paint to paint the ruine and the palm trees. The birds are fused applique. This quilt is around 40"x40" (100x100 cm) and heavily machine quilted. I have to measure it to know the exact size. Title is: Swallows of San Juan de Capistrano, a city in Southern California known for the annual migration of cliff swallows.

On this picture you can see some of the details of the quilting I did:

I love the wonderful perspective you've gotten in this quilt. I keep saying I'm going to try something with that "looking up" orientation. This inspires!
