For the Birds

IMG_0474

And boy is this quilt full of birds!  My Mom had quite the collection of bird fabrics that were turned into this quilt.  We started this quilt a year ago (which is like an eternity in Allison quilt time) and now finally have it finished and sitting in her living room.  Its big, I think a queen size or better, so it was quilted by a long arm quilter who did a fabulous job as always.  The fabrics are funky and fun, and now we can bird watch while we sit on the couch and eat ice cream.

I made another tree pillow before we left Cleveland.  I’m hoping I can get my sewing groove back soon so  I can sew  up some more of these, and finish up my list of want-to-do’s before my fabric stash takes over the world.

I love the quilt you made, it's very pretty. I did a snowball quilt, and it took forever, having to sew corners on all the squares, it's worth it in the end. I really like the tree pillow, it's adorable!
