block 14

Okay, last night I finished block # 14, the peahen.

In addition, I have prepared two more blocks for appliquéing at my guild meeting next weekend. They are block #13, the table and the cherries, into which I have sneaked my cats Bootsy and PeeWee. I still miss the cherries but hope to find a good solution for those during the applique workshop. The berries are smaller even than the Perfect Circles...

 and block # 9 (I believe), the bird of paradise, which I think turned out beautifully. But alas, again with the feet....

Can't wait to stitch them....

  1. Those are beautiful, I love the way you have incorporated your cats, their fabric is "purfect", I still havent decided how to include my cat and dogs. The bird's colours are lovely too.Is the tablecloth a William Morris fabric?

  2. Hi Ann,

    both the tablecloth and the vase are Liberty's fabrics. I guess they might be (at least the vase) Morrison designs...

  3. Beautiful Blocks, Britta. This blog is such an inspiration to me. I plan to begin my own journey in the new year and have been assembling fabric.

  4. I love the cats! I think it's that type of personalization that makes an amazing quilt.

  6. Britta your blocks are so good! Peahen is lovely with his embroidered crown feathers (what do you call those on his head?) Kitties are cute and I like the wood floor fabric under your table. The Bird of Paradise is wonderful, love the oranges, he is a very handsome fellow.
    Happy Stitching!

  8. Gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS!! Beautiful blocks, and I LOVE your kitties in the table block! If you've seen my finish, you know I LOVE it when people go "rogue" and make the quilt their own with personal touches(and they are such nice, well-behaved looking kitties...mine would be IN the vase...LOL).

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  9. @Bobbie and Manoli: thanks!!!

    @Karen: looking forward to seeing your blocks. I also feel so inspired by this blog and the many good comments and tips, that I just can't stop. Well, I'm on a semester break and that helps, too. But it is sooo much fun!

    @ Marjorie and Teresa: I did not want to embarrass my cats by displaying them in their usual mode: fighting each other, begging for goodies, or throwing things off elevated spots... I explained to them that they should take this good behavior depiction as enticement to live up to it... (and at least I granted one of them the bad behavior of sitting on the table, which they are not allowed to, either; the other will be given an embroidered mouse to play with once the applique is done)...

    @Cheri: don't ask a non-native English speaker for such intricate zoological terminology... I have absolutley no idea what they ar called, but crown makes sense to me... ;o)
