My trip to Italy 6, Orvieto.... MY show and tell

My first day in Orvieto we (Sue, Mary Vanelle and me), went to the museum next to the Duomo.  We saw these wonderful birds and I immediately knew that I would use them in my work.



And this is the result of my class with Sue Spargo in Orvieto:












I hesitated about yes-or-no adding a border. I went through my fabric and found only one fat quarter that should be perfect for a border, but a fq was not enough.
So I decided to finish only with a binding.
