Hummingbird Redux

One of the favorite quilts I have made is the Hummingbird wallhanging quilt.  It is not "squared up" so it would never win an award for quilt-making.  And yes, I am fine with that.  I LOVE this quilt.  It hangs on my bedroom wall and makes me smile every day.  
First let me show you a closeup of the center. 
I think he has a lovely face. The white highlight in the eye as added with paint. Every other part of the center is hand-dyed fabric or thread. 


The outer circle is a batik bias tape.  And the four corners are purchased solid fabrics. 
This photo does NOT do this quilt justice. 
Here is a closeup of some of the quilting.

As the hummingbird has a face I am linking up with Nicole at DVArtist for the Friday FaceOff. 
I am hoping that she will be well enough to post the Face Off this week. 

Until Next Time,
