Dreaming of Spring

With spring around the corner, I've been dreaming of spring. To me it is not spring until you see your first robin red breast & I've been busy making mine till the robins arrive to announce that spring has sprung. Having fun cutting up an old sweater jacket that was washed, rather than taken to the dry cleaners. This sweater shrunk so much it would fit a small child...creating the term felted wool & the back was just 16'' enough for the circle. It was the beautiful blue back ground colour needed to make the Round Robin pattern by Bridget Lilja for The Quilt Show. I added wings to mine, very fun project in wool & machine stitched in the buttonhole stitch.
