Red Robin

I skipped one block, because I am thinking of making that a Groom block.
This one was fun, the leaves are big and quick to do, and I loved the discovery that robin's eggs are blue...

Block # 9

Now I need to do one more, and then I am halfway...
I loved the challenge of finding fabrics for this one...

"Proud Peacocks"

I loved making this block!

Especially when I found a small piece of very old fabric just right for the crests!

I had planned doing the embroidery but couldn't resist this fabric,,

Up to the next one.

one block closer

I finished one more block over the holidays. This is my version of block 4.  I re sized and changed things around a bit.  I put in my DD#1 instead of the bird.  My plan is to include all of my family members in this quilt.  I have 2 blocks left to make and then the borders.
While I was embroidering the grape stems I got out the table block to embroider the cherry stems.  I haven't done much of the embroidery on my blocks yet but I am getting some encouragement from a friend so there is hope  :0)
Maybe 2013 will be the year I finish this project!!
Happy Quilting!

Welcome 2013.....


I finished this block in December, but busy with the holidays and now just had time to post. It was an easy block to applique and love how the oranges came out! Thanks for the inspirational comments and emails. Wishing all a Happy New Year! Now, onto the next block!
