Saturday more birds were added to Bird Brain on the wall and I put them in longer rows to see what I needed to do still – and then of course I got side tracked and didn’t figure it out! Now they are in 5 longer rows – right now without the blocks sewn together this will be about 40 x 53 the blocks with the branch on the bottom are about 7.25 x 8.5 the tree trunk (long sashing) running down the length will be the same as the branches these are 2 inches so would be 1.5 finished – so I have more to do for sure! A week ago I had 14 birds now there are 30 – I’m pleased with the progress I made this week on these birds. Each bird block only takes about 15 minutes if I settle in not get distracted and get down to work – they should be done by now!! Linking my birds to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
But I think I will take a day away from the Birds and for my Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will get my applique ready for Morning Glory – I’m getting tired of putting it aside and need a day away from the sewing machine – I think it will be all hand work today. So today I will iron the freezer paper onto the fabric, trace around with pencil or chalk pencil, cut and glue baste. Then I will have a project in the living room to work on (I get tired of mini hexies quickly) when I want to for the next month or so as I know it will take that long in between all the other hand projects.
I forgot to take a photo of the quilting that I did on Saturday night and rolled the quilt down – this is where I started last night and will continue on today – Handful of Scraps is half way done!! – 3 weeks of quilting 28 hours.
Hope you all enjoy your Sunday and if you are doing slow stitching link to Kathy – the link is above and on my sidebar Kathy’s Quilts (well as soon as I get up that is), we always love to see more quilters taking their time with hand work.
