Golden Eagles

Another block done for  "A Bountiful Life ".  The Golden Eagles.  Lots of leaves on the blocks but not hard to stitch.  I finally found a block I could use the gold wavy fabric in.  Have had it quite a while.  The bird claws took patience.  Teeny tiny!


I have started doing applique blocks for another quilt and will share in the next post.  Why another new project when I have so many unfinished?  Just because I was in the mood.  Stay tuned.

No need to explain the need for a new project. I totally get it. The gold fabric is perfect for the eagles.

Love your eagles block - great job. Yes, a lot of leaves. An I certainly agree that those feet are tiny - they about drove me crazy when I made this block. But you did a great job!!

Beautiful fabric choices and you have a lot more patience then I do, I really need to start some appliqué and think it out before I start so I don't make a mess of the small pieces.

There were a lot of leaves to stitch and they look love. I have some of that gold wavy fabric too. It looks great for an eagle!

I do like the fabric for the birds. I took one look at the feet and the "birds" and changed mine. LOL. Pretty block - you are certainly being true to the original quilt.
Have a great day!!
