Birds in Flight

I just found this picture--forgot I had made this quilt.
It was one of those things that just took on a life of its own.  It is made of window screen rectangles  with small pieces of fabric stitched on and then the bird pieces appliqued. The squares are attached to each other just by threads.

I hung it outside on the patio for two years and the sun pretty much destroyed it.

It's gone but I miss it a lot--I think it's time to revisit the technique .
