I finished my version of block#16.
I changed the birds a lot in this one. I liked Susi's idea of turning them into bluebirds. It took several attempts to draw them. They needed to fill the available space while I was trying to make them look more like real Mountain bluebirds. In the end I remembered that this is a folk art quilt and then it was easier :0)
I thought I'd post a picture of my first 6 blocks together - they are in no particular order. I'm surprised at how bright they are. They are so fun to applique!! I have a good start on Block #1. It's different in that it's so symmetrical. I wonder if our bride made it first??
