Yesterday we gathered at Kim's to stitch block #1 of Little Miss Shabby's Birdie Stitchery.
As always, fantastic food.
I probably should have taken a picture BEFORE we started eating lol.
We all got a great start on our blocks. Kim even finished her's.
Kim's is the redwork block; Kim assembled her quilt already so she can embroider through her batting.
Cindy's block is in the left corner. She's using Nest by Moda. Andrea is using Bliss by Moda and her block is in the top left. Mine is the one with the wooden frame. I ended up forgetting two of my floss colors so I couldn't continue with my block. Jill's block is on the far right. Jill is still waiting for her jelly roll to arrive. I decided to do all my embroidery without adding my squares to my blocks.
After we came home, I ran out to the wool shop and picked up a few more flosses that blend better with my jelly roll.
Now I can get this finished. Bring on block 2!!
2 love it too:
What a great idea doing this as a block of the month! I'm still trying to get at my 'over the river and through the hills' one from Hamels....I wonder if I will EVER get it done?
I so love this Birdie block! I wish I had some quilty friends to gather with. Looks like so much fun.
