    My son is quite the bird lover so this is for him. Please ignore the "un-intentional" oops on it. I felt so rushed that I did not even notice the one bird who is facing the wrong way! I'll tell him that all quilters have to put in some kind of mistake...on purpose! This is the largest quilt I've machine quilted so far. It took me so long!

    Your DS will love his quilt! He probably won't even notice the one bird facing the wrong direction. I wouldn't point it out to him or tell him it was a design decision. A very Beautiful quilt!!1

    I don't see any wrong way birds! Since you are in the South he must be coming North for awhile.
    Like the quilt and really like your choice of the birds.

    What a neat design!! Did you create it? It's perfect for a bird lover!

    I only see one bird who likes to take a different branch--no errors.

    I have some of that bird fabric and was planning on making hot pads to sell--but I like your idea much better. :wink:
