    I probably should have said that the photos were taken before I bound the quilt.
    My Mom has Alzheimers so I wanted to make a quilt for her bed that was colorful and cheerful. She loved it.

    I also made this small wall hanging for the facility where she lives.

    The wall hanging is adorable. I'm afraid I'm going to catch the machine embroidery bug if I see many more of these delightful little cuties...how can anyone keep from smiling at these? Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks so much.

    I wish I could say that I designed them but I didn't. I purchased the designs from www.embroiderygarden.com

    The design collection is called "Holiday Birdies" Once I saw them, I had to have them. I am a real bird lover and the happy owner of a parrotlet.

    I think these designs would be real cute on a sweatshirt too.

    Very thoughtful of you to make a quilt to make sure that it is cheerful for your mother and also to make the wall hanging too.

    I loved those birdies when I saw them - but I didn't get them when they were on sale... I keep waiting for her to have a sale again so I can get them. I am still kicking myself that I didn't get them when they came out :(

    You did and awesome job on that wall hanging - It is just perfect all around!!

    OOPS I just noticed I misspelled Christmas in the subject heading. My typing needs some work.
