“Six Gouldian Finches” by Linden Lancaster, Australian textile artist. The artist writes, “As a school child, I was encouraged to join the ‘John Gould Bird League’ and, as a result, I grew in my awareness and appreciation of birds. It is appropriate that these beautiful jewel-like birds carry the name of this amazing and influential naturalist.” The techniques and materials: machine piecing with raw-edge applique, free-motion machine quilting; mostly hand-dyed and surface-enhanced fabrics; thermofax stencils and fabric paint.
