Half way there

I too recently finished my Bird of Paradise block. His little head looked naked so I added a little topknot. And now I am a little over half way done the blocks. Yay. Here are the first 10 blocks as they will be set though this block is not quite complete in the photo.I think that it is really starting to come together and I must thank Susi (hope I got your name spelled correctly) for her inspiration for moving the blocks.


  1. Your first 10 blocks look fabulous together!! I still have no idea how I am going to arrange mine. You inspire me to keep going with my Bird of paradise block - I've been stuck on and off on that block for months. I like the "topknot" and your tail is gorgeous.

  2. Wonderful blocks....Love your little topknot!

  3. I love your paradise bird, and the "topknot" is the perfect addition (I always thought my paradise bird looked a little flat...wish I had thought of your inspired solution!). Your blocks look great...I just love the pea hen block. I substituted a cat in that block, but now I really miss that bird. You should be very proud of your progress so far!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)
