Funky Birds Mini Quilt

Here is the Funky Birds little mini. This is my first ever attempt at quilting and I have to say that the process was an absolute joy from the moment the idea came to my head to the very last stitch.

Being a complete novice at quilting, I did not even try attempting some fancy free motion quilting, instead I used simple straight lines around the edge of the quilt and added just a few french knots in the middle part.

The birds and the tree are done by hand using running stitch, backstitch, daisy stitch and french knots. I was a bit anxious at first, but as I kept working on this mini, the excitement took over and it all came together quite nicely. Even the binding was not that scary after all.
