Country Dimensional Applique

have been doing the on line Sulky Thread magic on line course and learning about the different sulky products. This is assignment 3 - back to the future really creating a very country feel little wall hanging and experimenting with different threads and techniques. The wee birds in the foreground are shiva paintstiks over a woodblock and the flower pot is layered cotton and sheer that has been partly burned away to give a mossed effect on the pot. The flower itself is dimensional applique and I have done very small free motion feathers up the tails of the peacocks. this is so far from my normal style of quilting but the project is finished now so it will be onto the next assignment
