Remember Mork and Mindy back in the day when Mork learned birds begin life inside an egg then threw an egg in the air and said " Fly Be Free." Well... thats where this title comes from. Such a talent for the ages...
I had painted this little bird a while back ( mini therapy during the hubby in wheelchair days) .. now to quilt! I painted this little bird on a light value yellow stonehenge and decided I liked the fringed out bottom edge and wanted to incorporate it in the finished piece... so the question in addition to "how to quilt?" was also " how to sandwich?"
Then I stitched the top edge of the fringe to the backing where I also placed a finished edge at the bottom.. THEN inserted batting.
Then the very top an open circular pattern I call Curly Q.
