Broad Billed Hummingbird
40 in(126 cm x 102 cm)
My quilts tend to be nature-based. I’ve been exploring the concept of enlarging smaller images, allowing the details to be more pronounced. The tiny, broad-billed hummingbird measures about 4 1/2” in height, so I chose to scale up this bird enough that the viewer can identify it without needing to see the whole bird. Over 800 feather barbules were made in this piece.
