    Bird Watching all the time

    Well ladies & gent's I love nature. I know many of you don't like to use fabric panels...but they are fun for me to use. My daughter purchased most of the fabric in this for me. The bird panel she bought a year ago this month, in Dec. she purchased the bird houses for me....then I remembered the panel...so I combined them. Name:  001.JPG

    Love how you combined the two. They look made for each other.

    I don't frequently use panels because they are more challenging for me to use to make a bigger quilt. I did make a cool one for my dad with a panel. I also used to pick patterns based on whether or not I could adequately quilt using the walking foot. You did a great job with this panel.

    Just want to clearify...the center is the panel, I added the framing around it, the othe birds off the center is fabric I picked up at walmart just a couple days ago. the framing is left over from a couple years ago, it looks like birch logs.

    Beautiful! You did a great job on this & I'm glad you explained what all the panel consisted of. I'm a bird lover and I love this quilt!

    How lucky to have a panel and birdhouse fabric to join. Your DD picked out two winners. Great combo and beautiful quilt!

    Thank you Susan, I'm afraid I don't know many American birds, but I do love them. Just want to share with you that we had our local friendly peacock call around for his breakfast just minutes ago. Always a delight to see him.

    Really like this and certainly looks more doable than the pattern I got today: paper piecing. I have only practiced this before. Love bird watching, so if you get tired of yours ....

    I designed the pattern myself....don't think I'll tire of it any time soon.

    I love it. The birdhouse border is just too cute. I like to use panels to make wallhangings, they are great for practicing your quilting also. I have several in my stash, have to get them out and make something out of them.

    Also a bird watcher. Love your quilt. I used pics my husband took of birds at our feeders, printed them onto fabric and made them into a table cover quilt for our dinning room table. Came out great.

    This is just super. Can you tell me where she got the bird houses. My son loves birds and really wants a bird quilt. For Christmas last year I got a bunch of birds houses and his children (boy 8 and girl 10) painted them. When I tried to tell them what colors the houses really should be painted I was told that what they were doing was known as Creative work. He now has some wild bird houses. But they are fun. Where did she get the panel? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. You put this together great. Thanks so much for sharing. BrendaK
