For the Birds - Small Whole Cloth Quilt


Finally!  Finally!!!  I have been waiting for my day to reveal this quilt.  Today is my day to participate in the For the Birds blog hop hosted by Sew We Quilt and  I Piece 2 - Mary.

CLICK IMAGES FOR A BETTER VIEW!  :)


It was so difficult to get a good photograph of this quilt because the detail is so small, but here are my best shots in the sun...



My tweet tweet up close ... if you look closely at the center, they are love birds!


Hubby and I immortalized on cloth in bird form?  Lol*


Here are a few close ups in progress (just after markings were removed) to give you an idea of the size of the detail on this small/miniature whole cloth.


My love birds are teensy too...

The back detail...


...my little label I was awful proud of!


Well there you have it.  My For the Birds quilt.  I hope you enjoyed the pictures, I am thrilled to show you! It was very difficult to keep this a secret, but good too because it inspired me to make a king sized whole cloth for my bed!  I hope you will visit the other bloggers participating in this hop and leave them some comments - this has been such a great group to create with!!!  Thank you so very much Mary and Madame Samm for all of your hard work!
