The Ticker Tape Quilted Bird

I am finishing up a quilted gift.  It is a ticker tape style quilt, in the shape of a bird.  The bird silhouette was an image off google, which I then  hand-drew onto linen.  I traced the outline with that embroidery running stitch.  The whole piece is only 15″ square and will likely be turned into a pillow.  It is a very quick little project and uses up a tiny bit of scraps.

So now the big question:  To whom will I be giving the BIRD to this holiday season???  bwhahahahahah.

Sorry about the lighting quality in these posts.  One image is dark and “instagram-esque” and the other picture seems quite over exposed.  I suppose I shouldn’t snap photos in the house without daylight.
