These blocks are a ufo from many years ago. I was inspired to finish the top when I took a "Circle of Nine" workshop last year. I decided that I would use 30's reproduction fabrics to set the blocks together because the colors went so well with the birds. Each block is colored with crayons and heat set with an iron. Then using matching colors of embroidery thread, I did a straight stitch around the birds, berries and branches. Each block was then squared and framed to create a 12 1/2 inch block. I am hoping to have the top finished by the end of March. Go visit a lovely year of finishes March goal setting link to see more projects!
|My main goal for the month of March is to get the birds into a completed quilt top. I would also like to finish my pink ribbon quilt, bind 2 small quilts, and finish at least 3 of the BOMs that I'm participating in.
