Bird Stitchery #7: Magically the Sun Appears

Rise and shine! Today we stitch the sunrise for our little bird quilt. That blazing sun is first outlined with a Blanket Stitch using a size 12 pearl cotton thread in the Aquamarine colorway. This is the outtie version of the Blanket Stitch. Not to be confused with the innie version.
A few orange French Knots at the tip of each Blanket Stitch repeat our orange color and add cheer to that sunny shape. The sun is officially on fire! Don't worry, tomorrow we come back to earth for more stitchery.
