Spring……and birds…..they just go together. I have always enjoyed watching the birds in our yard and enjoy watching the migrating birds return to the feeders each spring. This blog hop had my name all over it with the gorgeous bird fabrics – Tracy Lizotte for Elizabeth’s Studio. Thanks so much to Lana who is our wonderful "bird caller" and to Madam Samm for another exciting blog hop.
So….what did I create? Well......birds and birdhouses just go together to me.
Of course this would not be an outside birdhouse, but a little storage box that I can use next to my favorite stitching chair.
It is 4x6” and just perfect for holding scissors, threads and a bird pincushion (pattern from Deonn at www.quiltscapesqs.com)
The fabrics were so beautiful and I wanted to do something that would show them off a bit more so I made a tote as well.
This tote is a pattern that Stephanie Dunphy shares in her book, Uncommonly Corduroy. The body of the tote is made of corduroy and went together easily.
My most recent issue of Stitch magazine had a wonderful bird mini quilt that I thought would be a fun one to make for spring. I did mine a bit differently, but I liked the way that the scraps worked up for the nest.
To celebrate the upcoming arrival of spring, I have a giveaway of a panel from these gorgeous fabrics. Just leave a comment and I will select a winner at the end of the hop. If you are a follower of my blog you can leave a second comment telling me how you follow.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Please be sure to check out the rest of the blogs for some bird inspiration. Happy spring!
