Love Birds is a one of a kind original art quilted piece. I will make no others exactly like this one. I think it is sweet the way one owl looks like he’s sliding up next to the other and trying to act all cool about it! It’s like he’s thinking, “Hoo-hoo, don’t mind me over here snuggling up against you!” Such cute owls in love!

It is inspired by a picture of a pair of owl statues that we have in a part of our garden we call "The Owl Nook". I have all kinds of little owl statues tucked away amongst the oaks in that corner of our yard.

This art piece measures a little over 8 inches square. The mixed fiber fringe at the bottom adds another 1 to 5 inches to the length. The fiber hanger adds another additional 5 inches to the length. If you did not want to hang it as is from the fiber hanger, it could easily be cut off or tucked behind the piece. This piece would really look stunning mounted in a shadow box type frame.

It features a variety of art quilting techniques such as appliqué, reverse appliqué, free motion quilting, hand beading, and needle felting. This was a very labor intensive piece and I really enjoyed creating it.
The two owls are about 3 inches tall and each are made from a variety of green and emerald shades of textiles and specialty fabrics such as satins, velvets and netting. I used free motion stitching with variegated and metallic threads to add details to the owls.

The purple background is made from layers of fibers and fabrics from my Amethyst Dream collection.

The bottommost layer is an original woven complex cloth I created and stitched.

The sky area features a layer of sheer organza with velvet accents in a spiral design. These layers were free motion quilted in a swirl and star design using purple variegated thread. I then hand beaded a variety of glass and plastic seed beads in shades of green to accent the night sky. There are over 60 beads on the piece some of which were up-cycled from a bracelet that I could not bear to toss out. I was so excited that they were the perfect color for this piece.

The ground area features layers of metallic purple tulle which I free motion stitched in a stone or rock pattern using silver metallic and gray threads.

The fringe is a formed from a variety of purple and green threads, yarns, material, fibers and fabrics.

The edges are needle felted with two types of yarn. One is a fuzzy fiber in lighter green and the other is a yarn that’s twisted with several shades of green. This fiber makes the hanger for the piece as well.

The back of the piece is a green leaf and geometric cotton print. I have attached my label and I have titled and initialed the piece.

I hope you enjoy these two love birds as much as I have enjoyed creating them!
