My blocks are stitched...

...my birdie BOM by Little Miss Shabby!!

I last blogged about it back in August when I had finished the August block...

Since then they have been sitting in a pizza box and in April I opened it and finished stitching the blocks.

...here is September


...and October


...and November


...finally December


The quilt top is finished, I'm really happy with it.
I made a few minor changes and I will add some embellishments after it is quilted.
I just can't get a good picture of the whole quilt...I'll try picture taking again tomorrow
or I may wait until it is quilted and bound.

Make sure you leave a comment on this posting for another chance 
to win the Me and My Sister giveaway.  

See previous posting for details of the giveaway.

Giveaway closes at midnight May 19th.

hugs and happy stitching

The stitching is so cute and the scrappy borders on the blocks add another level of interest. This will be adorable when it's all put together!

Brenda said...

Love the blocks. I have only finished 4 of the blocks so far.

Christa said...

Can't wait to see how you finish the quilt. Will there be anything between the pieced borders around the blocks?

That little birdie is tooooo cute for words. :)

Karen said...

Great to see these blocks back from the lost and found. In fact, I should do the same with a few of mine. I enjoyed seeing your binding tutorials again. There is always something to work on and improve. It is great to have your tutorials as a reminder to keep me on track.
I must try the double sided idea. I really like the look that gives a quilt.
Thanks for your great posts.

Take care, Leslie

Those blocks are so cute. It looks like the embroidery stitches are not too complex.

Congrats on finishing your blocks! I have the designs all printed out, and now maybe this will be the push I need to start mine!

Your blocks look nice and cheerful. I followed the embroidery directions yet assembled them in a different way and hand quilted. Once you finish I know you will love your birdie quilt. Good work!

Eu aprendi a bordar "obrigada" por minha avó,ia fervendo de raiva,minha irmã ia com gosto...o meu dever de casa ela fazia por adorar bordar.Hoje minha irmã não suporta e eu adoro,o meu tempo é pouco,mas tenho feito aquelas antigas semanas,com uma mulher ou um bicho,sempre trabalhando.Tipo segunda lavando roupa etc...O que vende não é normal...Um dia eu animo a bordar uma colcha igual a sua,quem sabe?.Um beijo.

Lovely stitching. Adorable scrappy borders.

I seriously want people that I craft for to use my gifts -- but I'm not sure I could do more than just gaze admiringly at your quilt. I just love the birds.
