    I just need to do some of applique sewing and get my border and binding on it. It's been on the shelf for probably 6 months patiently waiting for me to get everything else out of the way.

    Thanks to all...you are all so kind. This was a group effort. Each of us my a dozen or so of the bird houses and each of us put ours in a pile and then picked one from each pile for our quilt. It worked out pretty good. The bird houses were all paper pieced so that part was easy. It's all the appliqued flowers that give you the pain.

    It is so Summerish!! I love it!!!! Still waiting for summer here.. We have had a full week of pea soup fog, rain, HEAVY rain, and temps of about 10 degrees celcius. I think summer has forgotten us.

    Thanks for giving me a virtual feeling of summer..

    Thanks everyone. Wow if those were real flowers they be driedd by now. It's been sitting around in my stash pile a long time. I just happened to be digging around and thought maybe I should finish it. :)

    Oh! I love the meadow and flowers! Do you have any close-up shots! Would love to see more and do keep us posted! :-)

    *edited to say that I just realized that your post was from 2008. Is your quilt finished now? Can we see?? :-D*
