It was finish it up week here. Just have to get back to my Flower Garden project, and see if I can clear the mess off the floor and return the sewing room to some sort of order.
The red bird improv mini is finished. I hung it up in my sewing room above my sewing machine. So many comments on them being Christmas birds. That made me realize I had some really lovely Christmas neutral fabrics. Maybe I should have done the entire quilt improv in them instead. So yes, I have decided to remake the quilt as a truly Christmas project.
So I managed the four corner blocks. I did make the pieces a bit larger to simplify the process. Now to get the Christmas birds in the center section done.
My Alex Anderson project is finished. I did consider quilting it myself, but the sewing room is loaded with a number of UFO's that are suffering neglect and crying out for being finished. So this little one is headed to the quilter for finishing.
lovely, lovely projects!!ReplyDelete
Your bird improv quilt turned out just great! I love the red birds, instead of blue (or maybe they are turquoise) as in the pattern. Now I really want to make that one!ReplyDelete
The birds are wonderful, and those are some beautiful Christmas neutrals - no wonder you wanted to make another one with them. :) Those are such pretty colors in your Alex Anderson quilt top.ReplyDelete

Wow on the improv quilt - you really do have some pretty Christmas neutrals. Are you remaking the one in the photo or are you making another one? Alex Anderson is spectacular!ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday. :)
Two fabulous finishes!!! Or near finish for the AA quilt! I hope your quilter does something really spectacular on it!!!ReplyDelete
Stunning is my word for your Alex Anderson top! Beautiful colors, beautifully pieced. I love your red birds and all those wonderful neutrals in the background. I'm sure the Christmas one will be very special also.ReplyDelete
That bird mini turned out will with the red birds. The remake is going to be stunning in those holiday prints!!ReplyDelete
Pretty tops! Your cardinal piece reminded me that I haven't seen ours in a while. Perhaps they moved south this year.ReplyDelete
I love how you have your beautiful birds facing each other...romantic. Yes, it would be lovely in Christmas fabric. Wow! I admire how you kept all your points in Alex. That is my goal next year: keep my points! :)ReplyDelete
That is just darling!ReplyDelete
Love those sweet red birds! The redo in Christmas fabrics will be sensational! Your Alex Anderson quilt turned out so nice! Can't wait to see how your quilter quilts it. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Your quilts are just beautiful! May I ask if the pattern is the same as the Birds of a Feather from my new book, Scrappy Improv Quilting? It surely looks the same! So pretty. They will look beautiful with Christmas neutrals.ReplyDelete
