    I love it! I hope she makes the deadline for the fair. I'm addicted to birdhouses. I didn't know about FatCat in time to get the free BOM and I'm too tight with my pennies to buy it. You know, fixed income, economy, etc. Maybe one day. I can't wait to see hers done. Are you going to quilt it for her or is she going to try and tackle that too? I hope she wins first prize.

    Dear gdd, GOOD FOR YOU!
    You have done a great job making your birdhouses!
    I have a question...are you planning to add birds?
    There are some fabrics out there that are full of birds, that you can cut out and sew onto your blocks. You can find butterflies that you can cut out and sew onto your blooks too. ....and there are embroidered butterflies that come in packages in some fabric stores - like Hancocks.
    For flowers and leaves, you can design your own!
    To think about a flower, to make one, cut out and it sew petal by petal. To make stems get a package of narrow green or brown binding and sew that on first.
    And do you know what? they make ladybug buttons you can sew on!
    All this is lots of fun too!
    If you can't find the birds and buterflies PM me.

    That is amazing! Her blocks are beautiful, and what a wonderful thing to teach her. Great job, grandma. :-)

    She is doing a great job. She takes after her grandmother when it comes to quilting.

    Should title it "The Making of a Quilter" - a real talent on the horizon..........hope the "entering" bug bites her - it's fun to enter things in a fair.
