"Gray Matter" Fiber Art Bird Collage

I've been thinking of what to create for the
Asheville Quilt Guild Show's Member Category 
"Gray Matter" 
I challenged myself to only use gray fabrics - a stretch since
I usually use many bright colors. And since I'm still having so much fun creating birds,
it made sense to make a larger version of the Bird Art from the 
Here's the all gray background fabrics pieced with lots of pins
ready for the hand applique process. 
I do enjoy hand sewing.
"Gray Bird At Dusk" $475
29 inches long X 25 inches wide.
Since creating a Fiber Art Bird daily for the April Art Daily in bright batik & hand dyed fabrics, this "Gray matter" AQG Member challenge seemed fun. The hand embroidery on the bird is variegated grey Pearl Cotton.

Your monochromatic palette is striking. I particularly like the unexpected dark gray diamonds breaking up the background.

I love the combined drama of the bird, the piecing and the grey!
