I’ve had a productive week in my sewing room. I hope I can keep this momentum and make this kind of progress for many more weeks this year!

I was able to get the borders on the bird quilt. Three borders on the quilt meant taking an average measurement, piecing the strips, pinning them in place, stitching and pressing – 12 times! I just kept pecking away at it (see what I did there? πŸ˜‰ ) and finished them all up.

Bird Quilt FlimsyI apologize for the crappy picture. I had hoped to get the quilt outside for some nature shots – you know, birds in trees – but this is what it looked like outside yesterday:

Snow DayWith gusting winds and a wind chill advisory in effect, I thought me and the birds should stay inside!

Today my friend is choosing the backing fabric and hopefully I can get the quilt on the longarm next week. I’m not sure how to quilt it;Β  I’m thinking maybe an all over design but haven’t yet picked one. I know I don’t want to do anything too dense because this is going to be a cuddle quilt. Any suggestions?

I think the block with the cardinals is my favorite.

I hope you have a great weekend. Stay safe and warm!
