Birds for Baby

I saw this birdie quilt in McCall's Quilting and just had to make it for my soon to be here great granddaughter. It is such a sweet quilt!! I hand appliques the bodies and wings, and machine appliqued the beaks and legs. It is quilted in an all over meander.






The weather here was beautiful today. Dave and I played golf for the first time this year, and we did remarkably well. I miss summer so much as we always hike one day and play golf one day, and the rest I get to sew while he works in the garden. It will be here soon, but this was a really nice preview.


More later,

Oh I'm so jealous....I've been dying to go golfing but the course is still white :o(

Bob has been practicing his swing (no club) in the living room. I keep teasing him that it looks like a classic baseball swing LOL.

The birdie quilt is adorable Wilma. I have the magazine also and thought about making one sometime. Birds seem to be the rage it seems from wallpaper to clothing.
