    Scrappy tweety birdies

    A couple weeks ago a friend send me a copy of the pix zozee posted on the QB of 4 of her birds. She told me about blockLotto.com, and the pattern was there, and I also found it on sew preeti's blog.

    I used scraps of neutral fabrics for the backgrounds. It was quilted with vertical serpentine lines that were one inch apart.

    These little darlings were addictive! I will probably need to make another one.

    oh, so very cute
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I made this pattern a couple of years ago for a Row By Row quilt for a friend. It was my first paper piece pattern. I loved it and so did my sewing sister.

    Wonderful job Judy...and it only took you a couple of weeks? I'm jealous. I don't get any time for sewing during the summer months but love seeing what other members are doing.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Nice quilt, Judy! Thanks for sharing the link...birds and cats are my favorites. Crazy since they're enemies, right?
    Your color combinations, as always, are spot on!
