Last night I appliqued the last piece onto my Civil War Bride Quilt. I've been working on it since 2010. It is exciting to finally finish the top. I want to handquilt it so it will still be awhile before it is completely finished.
I used the Threadbear pattern for most of the blocks but designed my own borders. What a wonderful project it has been to work on.
This was a fun block to do! I know those birds sure wish they could see what they are eating! I've been thinking of using a black yarn with a candle wicking type knot and add white, gold, or brown for pupils. Any suggestions?
