Funky, fun, and not too serious…..

Ever feel like life is just too serious? That you want to laugh more? That art doesn’t have to be complicated?

Check out this quilt displayed at Threads of Time in Danville, Illinois.  Titled “Funky Flock,” it was pieced by Mary Bird and taken from the book “Hot Flashes of Inspiration.” Isn’t it fun? If you look closely enough, you see that each of those birds have a definite personality.

We added colored buttons for each of the eyes, but you could use decorative stitches, hand-embroidery, or dimensional fabric pieces instead.  (It is a great opportunity to utilize some of those cute little buttons in your button jar.)

It’s fun to think outside the traditional patterns and go for a little bit of “funky.” Not in this case, “funky chicken,” but “birds of character” or “feathered friends with attitude.”
