I had a lot of fun making this block for Lisa, who's in the Sew New to Me Quilting Bee. Her theme is birds, branches and bungalows. How fun!
The bird and branch applique patterns are from Anna Maria Horner's new book called Handmade Beginnings. I attached them with Steam-a-Seam Lite (a double sided fusible webbing) first and then stitched around each shape.
Lisa sent out quite a bit of fabric, so I was able to cut it into strips and make this great angled border. I haven't made mitered corners in a long time, either. I should try that more often, it looks good and really wasn't that hard.
I'm thrilled with how it turned out and hope Lisa will like it, too!
Just a reminder that you have until tomorrow at noon to enter the cuckoo clock fabric giveaway! It's open to anyone (who lives anywhere), so good luck!
