Bird Block #5

I'm finally back home, so here is my finished block 5! It's getting harder and harder to get a good, undistorted picture. I had to stand this up on the back of the recliner to get the right angle on it!

As you can see, the circle is the hole in the birdhouse. The free motion embroidery is the twigs. I was planning to do the leaves in free motion embroidery too, but I had so much trouble that I gave up and just machine appliqued and embroidered them. The birds are from a Pam Bono design using a diagonal corner technique. I'm really happy with them!

Here is everything put together. I gave up trying to get a good angle. Since you've already seen all the individual parts, I didn't worry about trying to get it square in the photo. Can't wait for the next rule!!

Love it, LOVE IT!!! Your birds are so cute and the birdhouse is just what they need. Your twigs look fine and the leaves really set it off. I can really appreciate your struggles, and hope we can continue to learn new things as we go.

You really did a good job on that one. I like how everything is coming together on your quilt. The colors are blending well too. It is so cool to see how everyone has the same rules and such very different quilts.

I love the way your quilt is coming together. It's so much fun to see what you do with the rules and keep the theme of your quilt going. Very creative!
