I know I have been MIA. I have no excuses other than real life has taken over with many obligations, most of them good ones!
This quilt was made as part of a challenge for the Penn Oaks Quilt Guild. We had to make a quilt based on a Silver Screen movie, mine was The Birds. I will always remember my mom letting my sister and I watch it for the first time. That farmer with the X's over his eyes still scares me!
I really enjoyed making this quilt and it has become a favorite of mine. I think the quilting works too.
The birds are made without a pattern which always makes it challenging to set them into a cohesive quilt!
It won the Smile Maker award!
My other guild, Calico Cutters also had a bird challenge. These quilts will go to a homeless shelter for them to auction off to raise funds.
It was made using fusible applique with a blanket stitch to hold it all down.

My grandson, Finn had his first birthday last weekend. I can't believe he is 1 already! He is such a little lovey and a very happy child!

I must admit I have been infatuated with Instagram. It is quick, easy, fast and fun. Now that Facebook has taken over they are going to change it. Not many people are happy with the change, so you may be seeing more people go back to blogging, me included!
