Number five! I've made changes to this block but not so much because I'm creative but more that I can be kind of lazy and look for the easy way out. I'm now working on the block with the bird's nest which is one of my favorites in this quilt because I like the bird's nest with the eggs but also because most of the pieces are simple (except for the skinny bird feet-groan).

  1. Just love those star flowers and I must admit that is the flower that has held me up the most. Just have the centres of the flowers to do and it is done

  8. Very pretty block Debra, I love your bright cheerfull colors. I mentioned bird toes being the most difficult part of this quilt and a local applique teacher gave me the suggestion to use ultrasuede. She said you do not have to turn under the edges because it does not ravel and that you can still use the silk threads that just melt into the edgesa and hardly show. I have a little greyish brown sample and am definitely trying it on the next block I do with bird feet.

    Happy Stitching...

  9. Hey Debra, Love the block. How about embroidery for the birds feet. Two strands of black in a satin stitch would look beautiful. Be sure to use a hoop to keep the tension in the fabric, or you will have puckers. I do adore your colors. How about a collection of pics next? We just love seeing them all together.

    Blissfully Stitching,
