    I have decided that I must make this quilt. Is anyone else planning on making one?

    I have both the book and the CD, but I'm still working on my skills set before starting. Am figuring on several years yet......

    Yes! There are a few of us hovering on starting. Mostly they are finishing off their Affairs of the Heart. Some have the book now (rather pricey, as it's out of print) and some have the CD

    When were you thinking of starting, because I have just finished quilting the first border of my AOTH, so I am nearing the end of that now, and I have all the fabrics read to go.

    Very pretty, but I'm afraid that it would take more than a lifetime for me to finish.

    I have the book - but after looking at that gorgeous finished quilt - I think I will wait awhile to start mine.

    The book is called Little Brown Bird, by Margaret Docherty but as I said before, it's out of print, so can be quite pricey. There is a CD of the same name, that will print the patterns for you, give you a pic of each block and some instructions, but I'm not sure if you get a pic of the whole thing.

    It is absolutely beautiful but, I do not have the skills to do that kind of quilt. My brain is not that smart :(

    It's beautiiful. Looks like a lots of work. At my pace, I'd had to start it at about age 5 to have time to complete it.

    I have my book, but I need to finish up on two quilts first. My Dear Jane and my AOTH. I am not as far forward as Lacelady, but I have completed the middle and have just 8 more blocks to complete before I can say its finished, but then it needs quilting, soooooo it will be a while before I start LBB, but I m so looking forward to seeing who is going to join you.

    That is beautiful. Like many others have said my skill set is no where near that. I do look forward to seeing yours.

    This quilt is absolutely beyond words. I don't think I would ever even think about attempting anything like that.

    This quilt is absolutely beautiful but definately not on my bucket list. It joins the group of quilts that won't happen here, GFG, bargello, Lone Star, DWR, and anything in the style of Baltimore Album.

    I am going to do LBB, but I have to finish my Affairs of the Heart & another quilt for DH's office before I can begin. Several ladies have expressed a concern over the complexity of the quilt. I am planning on machine applique with hand embroidery. Am planning on using more reds & greens than Margaret did, though. Am thinking it will be a Christmas quilt. I have tons of batiks and a lovely Moda vanilla-cream solid for the background (nine yards of it!!!) I haven't gotten the fabric for the triangles or borders, but it will be some combination of red & green.

    It is beautiful. I kept looking for the brown bird. LOL Hope you have enough years left in you to finish this. Man! What an undertaking!
