Hummingbird #35

Block #35 For Kirby

Block #35 For Kirby

I have been waiting what feels like forever to post this bird for Kirby. The minute I made it I knew it was hers. It just feels like this one should belong to her. I have nicknamed it “Jail Bird”.

Kirby is a very talented artist. She is insanely good and I am so happy to know her. Seeing her work inspires me in my own. I love the way she expresses a story, event, thought or even a crazy dream. “Mistletoad” is my new favorite, FYI. –>For the record, Kirby has never been in jail! He just looks like he’s on the run<–

Several years ago Kirby gave me permission to recreate my other favorite, “Tortuga“, in fabric. Here is how far I got. I got stuck in a creative block on what to do about the quilting and flowers. The blue background has been removed. He will have yo yo’s for flowers and buttons for eyes.

About a year ago I asked Kirby to draw my babies. We were so pleased with how they turned out and I finally got them framed and hung up. We love them!
