It's For The Birds!!!!!

Hi!!!! Glad you are visiting here today!!!!  This is my first pieced, quilted, and bound project!!!!!  After one year of practice!!!!  Not perfect..No where near it!!!  .But I love it anyway!!!! The small birds are a free pattern from Block Lotto!!!!  The big bird is very whimsical and not very well designed by me!!!   I don't see how anyone finishes a Big Quilt!!!!  I will eventually though!!!!!  Not a great picture...the wind was so bad today and in between was rain!!!!  I started trying to learn how to quilt last year during Madame Samms' Spring Hop!!!!  I am so inspired by all the quilts during the hops at Sew We Quilt!!!!  Thanks Madame Samm!!!!  This hop is also hosted by Mary at I piece 2 Mary!!!!  Thanks Mary!!!!  Be sure to visit all the little or big birdies out there today and for the rest of the hop!!!! Todays schedule is below...this weeks full schedule is in the previous post!!!!!  Hope you have lots of fun!!!!

You'll get there.

Congrats and it is very cute.

Woohoo for a finish! You are smart though for starting small and working up. I didn't and the first quilt waited 7 years for completion.

How cute are those birds! I love the whimsy of the one you designed though the ones you picked to accent it are adorable as well.

Carla-Your little birds are so sweet. You did a fantastic job. My first large quilt I made while taking a class-that's what got me going, but I don't always make large quilts. I enjoy making smaller projects. Keep up the good work. From California thanks for sharing

Your first finished quilt is paper pieced? You have nothing to worry about. If you can do this finishing a big quilt will be easier than you think! Nice Job!

I think you did a great job.
