    Please, please don't shoot me for changing this month's house a bit...while I loved the idea of birdhouses, I still needed to keep it similar to my other blocks as DH thinks he needs this as a quilt for him when done! LOL! So it took a LOT of thinking of how I could stay true to the birdhouse theme and still make the block fit for my quilt...this is what I came up with...

    I love your cardinals!! I'm planning on having cardinals on my block, too! Mine will be a winter scene -- after all, it sure seems like winter is in absolutely NO hurry to leave us here in Michigan!! :evil:

    BTW: just in case I haven't done so already: welcome to the QB from southeastern Michigan!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Your block turned out so nice!!! I love the contrasting wings on your beautiful red birdies!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    OMGoodness!! :thumbup: Another great Spring Birdhouse block. I love the birds that you applique'd, too. I think you did a very good job. I am getting excited for the May block to come out. It won't be to long now!!

    WOW!! :thumbup: You did very good & don't worry about someone shooting you for changing it!! :D That is one thing that is so wonderful about the BOM. The blocks are for us & we can make them anyway we want to. Keep up up the great work. I love the three birdhouses you have added.
    :D :D :D :D

    Bout time I got my birdhouse finished, it's been half done for awhile but just couldn't get the motivation to do the applique!

    I have a love hate relationship with applique - love it when someone else does it, hate it when I do it .....

    Anyhow here it is, I did change the roof as well!

    I'm addicted to checking to see what everyone is doing! Love the designs and creativity that everyone brings to these little blocks. I'm a very "stay within the lines" person when it comes to piecing, but you all are inspiring me to edge outside the lines a little. I love it!

    I did a bit of a rush job on this one :oops:
    I don't like it when I get behind a month :hunf:
    Stitching around the dresden top will be what I do before I put it with the rest of the blocks.

    Just finished this months star also. :-D
