This is my new patchwork square for 'Poise', I found it very difficult to even think of anything to do, especially as I have constrictions as to the end result and the format, being sewing machine based and childrens' art.
I looked up the meaning of 'Poise' and there was a subsidiary definition ... "State of balance or equilibrium, equal balance of weight ~ Equipoise". I have seen a lot of these little birds around in my work at the markets, and I just love them, so they were perfect to add to my quilt... fat and small alike. So three small birds are equal in weight to one big fat one!
I loved doing this patch so much, I have done one for Rubys' clothing.
