Stitched and Quilted in July!

Land That I Love 
Birds of a Feather

I love this pattern by Birds of a Feather!  I bought this in the spring on a trip to Williamsburg and I can't believe that I have gotten it stitched and finished and it is still July! I actually finished it on the 4th of July....I felt so patriotic!  I new that I wanted to make it into a small art quilt when I first started stitching it.  While in the mountains last week, I found the fabrics I wanted to use.  I had to wait until I got back home to quilt it up because I didn't take my sewing machine to the mountain cottage with me.  I need duplicates of every crafting thing I own at the cottage!!!!!!I was sewing even before I finished putting all the vacation stuff away last night.  Finished this morning!  I used Timetex for the batting so that it was stiff, kinda like a new placemat would be.  I think I am going to do some kind of creative hanger/stand for it.  We'll see!


  1. It's beautiful! I love your fabric choices and the ric-rac!

  2. Nice job!! Love the nice fabric choices...

  3. That turned out amazing, I love the two different shades of blue fabric you used.
