    They are so beautiful, and I really love the one in the lower left hand corner. It is the meadowlark, the state bird of North Dakota. And if my eyes are seeing right, you have 2 of each bird. What a wonderful gift to receive. Hope you find a good way to put them together and display them.

    Very pretty. Are they vintage?

    Wow, a blast from the past! When I first began my quilting obsession, I bought enough of this fabric to make two quilts. Since I was a beginner, I did the individual blocks using the lap quilting method[Georgia Bonesteel] with solid brown sashing, mitered corners, and quilted around the birds. I made it for my Mom as she loved all things forest. She was thrilled with it and used it at the house up north. Evidently my sister likes it so much I didn't find it in the boxes of Mother's things left to me. Think it is time to use the leftover blocks to make one for myself.

    These are lovely. I see them in the center of star blocks. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. Thanks for sharing.
