    Birds and Flowers Album

    This is the quilt I have been working for the last 5 months. The size is 75 x 109. It was suppose to be turn under applique but to keep my sanity and to enjoy the quilt, I did fusible. I used the birds for the blocks from the book "Birds and Flower Album" by Bea Oglesby plus a few favorite ones of my own. My husband did the quilting and I am thrilled with the results. He has 35 to 40 hours in the quilting. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I look forward to your comments.
