QUILT INFO

I used an Electric Quilt applique design and modified it slightly to make this basket block.

BIRDSONG ROW 3, MILLENNIIUM GARDEN BLOCK 10

I have been doing a lot of stitching.  Row two of  "Birdsong"  is complete.  Not quite all of the block made it into the photo.  It is a long one.  It goes the whole width of the inside of the quilt.
 

Next, I spent two days stitching as much as I could to make this large block for "Millennium Garden".  And an afternoon prepping the applique pieces.  Two more blocks to go before all the applique is done.

I started block eleven last evening but did not get far on it.  I am anxious for the end now that I am getting so close.

I found a free prim style pattern on the internet here.  It is called "Birds of a Feather".  It has bird houses in the center and an applique border with birds, vines, leaves and berries.  It looks like you can make the quilt without enlarging the pattern pieces.  Or enlarge for easier stitching and a bigger wall hanging.  Check it out.

Back to my stitching.

  17. Love both your projects and the fabrics you are choosing are wonderful. I have all the birdsong strips appliqued - just need to sew them together with the half square triangles. Glad I found that same wavy fabric for the bird wings! I'm hand quilting my millenium garden so it will take a while to finish.
