Nine!


Here are the nine bird blocks joined together into the top for my little quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap 9. I might add a small border, but the quilt is already 20" x 21", and it can't be bigger than 24" x 24", so I don't have a lot of room.

I did have lots of ideas... flowers, butterflies, a birdhouse condominium... but in the end, I didn't want to detract from the birds. I also didn't want the birds to line up in perfect rows. I do like the fact that each is unique.

I wrote about how to making the birds in yesterday's post.

My Mom is getting better, and will be released from the hospital on Sunday! You can read about her birthday party on Millie's blog, here

I like this so much. All the different whites for the background look really good. I might have to change my opinion of white!
