Two Bird Blocks

I have been out of town for a couple weeks and although I thought I would get a lot more done while I had some time off work, I am pleased with the two bird blocks that I finished. I had my borders all prepped and thought I would be able to applique in the car --what was I thinking? Not possible to needleturn neatly while in a moving car. I had planned to mix some border work in with my remaining blocks, but then I start another block and just have to keep working on it. I am moving on the the table block next.
Happy Stitching All...


  1. I especially like the block with the bird nest.

  2. Such beautiful blocks!! You have wonderful variety in your greens for the leaves. I can't sew in the car at all - I get motion sickness.

  3. Wow Cheri,

    You're double dipping! Fabulous blocks...the nest block may be my favorite block in the whole quilt...your's is just beautiful. I love your second block as well. I left this one out and inserted one of my own, which makes me sad when I see how well your's turned out.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  4. wonderful colors! I can't wait to do the bird's nest too!

  5. Cheri,

    I love your nest block. I have just started that one myself and hope it comes out as nicely.

    Very nice! Oh to be able to applique in the car - we travel hundreds of miles a year and I can only look out the window and enjoy the scenery.

  7. Cheri, how beautiful all of your blocks are turning out. You will be finishing up sooner than you think. I too, cannot applique in the car, it make me rather ill. So, I always opt for a good nap. Keep plugging along, the last blocks and borders will be finished before you know it.
