A new begining

I have been lurking on this block for about six months and steadily working on my blocks, however I am just learning to post so here is my first block. I enjoy looking at everyone else's blocks as I plan my own and as you can see I was inspired by earlier posts to change the upper corner leaves into birds. Ok they don't look too much like birds but I like them anyway.


  1. Hi Heather, your block is very pretty. Oh Yes they do look like birds and are very nice. I like the fabric you use for the vase.
    Happy stitching

  2. Hi Heather! Your block is lovely! I'm so glad you're going to start posting. I love to look at everyone's blocks when I make decisions about color and fabrics too. It's such a fun project!

  3. Welcome to the fun and commaraderie Heather. Glad you figured out how to post pictures. It's so nice to see your pretty block. Nice fabric selection, especially like your vase, and the birds look great to me too.

  4. Your block is great and those definitely look like birds! Super job!

  5. I love the vase material and the birds look like birds, well done, and for learning how to post pictures, after a year and 15 blocks I still haven't worked out how!

  6. Great start to this quilt! The teal is really refreshing!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)
