I have been so excited to recently find out about this blog spot and to realize so many other people have been working on the CWB also. I have been working on the CWB pattern for about 7 months, by myself, through the BOM from Common Threads. I love this pattern and have been excited about all the postings others have made. The work everyone has been doing is wonderful.
In the last 7 months, I have finished 8 blocks - some work up alittle faster than the others thank goodness. I have tried to be true to the pattern as much as possible but I figure I can have "quilter's license" to make some changes as I go along. I did turn the orientation of one block (the bird and grapes) after my husband kept referring to it as "the dead bird falling from the sky" block. I have also used wool applique for the bird feet. The wool doesn't fray and there was no way I was even going to try to make those toes!
Although my other quilting friends have been very supportive as I embarked on this quilt, I am glad to have found this group. Working on the same quilt all over the globe. It's wonderful. I look forward to seeing everyone' work. Hope you liked me.
