    The Green Pheasant - Quilt

    Aloha!
    This one is a quilt I made 2 years ago. I tried to do something without using a pattern. Simply sew and see if it fits together was the motto. I hope the picture shows up

    Welcome from Washington State! It's a wonderful quilt and the colors and design are really cute. Looks like it worked out just fine.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wonderful free style quilt. Very good thing not to be scared of experimenting. Love the checker fabric between the birds.

    Great job! The "frames" really adds to its WOW factor!

    Great job. Colors work well together and your accent blocks really make the pheasants stand out. Kudos to you for trying it on your own. Welcome to the board and thanks for sharing.

    They really make those birdies pop, don't they? This is an awesome quilt. And you were braver than I ever will be, to go pattern-less. Great job! And welcome from the wet & windy wilds of western WI (it's stormy weather around these parts today)!
