A Hummingbird for a Special Lady

This piece is for a special quilt for a lady in a nursing home who has Multiple Sclerosis.  She spends most of her time in bed due to her illness.  Our group, World of Charity Stitching, is making a quilt for her comprised of different types of birds and crosses.  This should be a very interesting quilt when our quilter finishes it. 

The hummingbird and flower were quickly stitched, but the border took a long, long time.   After I finished the bird/flower, the square looked too small, so I found a border on the internet that I used to enhance the pattern.


  1. Oh, that is so beautiful, Peggy! What a perfect border too. I love everything about it. Fantastic stitching!

  2. Your hummingbird is going to look gorgeous on the quilt.
