Starting with block 20...

Here are my fabrics for my first block - block 20.
I just love birds in quilts, so I started a bird block with few colour choices. I know I will enjoy selecting colours later on, but I was just ITCHING to get started!! On their own the stems look like they are a creature from a Tim Burton film. LOL!!
I bought the whole bolt of fabric for my background - it's a lighter colour than that shown in the pattern. I think I will change the borders a bit. I like the horses in the original quilt. I can't wait to post again with more progress.
It's great looking at everyone's progress. Thank you to all blog members.


  1. Hi Lorraine, I love your colour choices and it's great that we all seem to be doing different blocks! Those stems do look a bit like a fracture inching along. Happy to have you joining us.
