Size:  593.0 KBUh... looks a bit better in person. 2 pp birdhouses but the second one is 6" unfinished so I had to add another strip. Now it looks choppy. I feel like I should add a flower or something b/w the birdhouses. What do you think. I am seeking some constructive advice.

    It doesn't look choppy at all, just looks PP. A flower would look cute, but I don't think it needs it. If you do put in a flower, use an S stem that crosses the middle seam. But seriously I don't think you need it. JMO

    I wasn't overly fond of the one posted, or any of the patterns I could find, so I drafted one myself.. it's mighty huge. It's a 20x20. I think I can fit a few birdie families in it. I chose a green floral pattern to try to represent a meadow or something. Maybe should have put a little strip of blue above it and below the "porch". Meh. Not bad for a first try.

    hopetoquilt.......your birdhouses couldn't be any cuter!! I just love them. I am also a pp'd fan, so they look great to me. If you wanted to add a flower you could, but it wouldn't be necessary. I think I will copy your idea of the button's on my birdhouse, if that is okay with you. It needs something, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it!! Thank you for sharing with all of us.

    Anastasia...........OMGoodness, for a first try you have made a marvelous birdhouse!! I love your pattern, it is really nice. It surely will house a lot of little bird families, that's for sure. The fabric you selected for the meadow is so pretty & I wouldn't change a thing about it. Congratulation's & thank you for sharing with all of us!!

    hopetoquilt-- I love your buttons that is such a cute idea.

    Anastasia - so cute makes me think of a southern plantation home.

    Thank you for the compliments

    Hello Everyone,
    I wanted to let you know that I am going to visit my DD today & will be gone from the board for a week. Hopefully I will be able to check in occasionally. Keep making your birdhouse blocks & sharing them on this picture thread, for everyone to see. I will be catching up as soon as I can. Take care & have a good week of sewing!!
    Hugs........ Sulabug

    Judy Nice Block Aren't Birdhouses fun I like the browns you used. Brown fabrics have always been my favorite.

    So I finished working on my block today. Seeing we are at the half way point I decided I would also post a picture of all my six blocks together. Wow only six more blocks togo.. As always once I post my block I dont want to hurry life along, but Im always looking forward to the beginning of the next month to see what new block is posted and what challenges it can bring. I started to do a PP birdhouse then I decided I would stick with the Applique method. I used English Paper Piecing for the birdhouse and the stems, vines and flowers are done using a method Muv (boardname) posted a how to in the tutorial section on this Board. Thanks for looking everyone and have a wonderful evening.

    I've got the purple block done. My goal was to make this one look like a page from a scrapbook. Don't know if I will do the other the same, or completely different.

    Purple and green block:
