Wool Folk Art Amish Birds

I have been wanting to make this pillow for a while now. Amish colors of black with deep green, purple, red, and gold are my favorites, so this pillow design has been very enjoyable! I am sewing in my studio half-square triangles to create a patchwork pillow backing fabric. This is going to be one of those designs that will be pretty on both sides. The birds are larger than I usually make out of wool. Their wings kind of look like saddles to me! The overall impact is very graphic. I'd love to know what you think of it!

Thanks for stopping by to visit...I am going back to the studio to finish up this pillow...I am having a blast!
Best wishes,
