well, this is a bit hard to explain - the birds with the big eyes were screen printed and then dyed with wax resists, in several colors (batik, sort of, but I think with the screen print you can't call it batik now?)

Anyway, if you are interested, you can look on my blog here: http://blotchandthrum.com/blog/?p=335 and here: http://blotchandthrum.com/blog/?p=344

The rest is commercial fabrics. Then it was machine quilted on my tiny machine, and I'm trying to be brave about, and I'm pretty happy with it.

The binding I tried to do a scrap binding, a few inches of each color and that was tough, getting those 45 degree angles to line up...

Very nice.  I like how the yellow bird is 'outside the box'.
