These circle mandalas are made with a 7 inch hoop. Fabric is stretched around it and then concentric circles are topstitched to make the design.
The center heart is called “Dance of the Hummingbirds”, designed by Laurel Birch for Cloth Works.
The circle of hummingbird hearts is machine appliqued on a background of deep purple fabric called fossil fern royal velvet.
The border and back are fossil fern african violet.
There is an outer circle of feather stitch using a varigated thread which mirror the colors of the tiny brilliant birds.
When viewed from a distance, the color and texture contrasts give it a lot of dimension.
Braided multicolored mohair yarn is hand tacked to the back for hanging
