The size is 15x20 1/2 inches which is a great size for some of the fancy little art quilt hangers you can find almost anywhere these days. This was on loan from a friend for the photos and this image was taken outside on the concrete in mottled light. I don't think the colors can do justice as its much prettier in person.
As with most all my raw edge applique this has its background created just for the image which is then fused in place and quilted with a muslin fabric under just the bird.
The quilting on the bird is metalic threads, lots of fun and interest here to catch the light. Once that is quilted I cut away the excess fabric and quilt the whole sandwich and border it.
