Jean, your blocks are so pretty. I admire your tenacity and patience and your beautiful choices of colors. This will be a quilt to be treasured long after we have left this world. I'd put a hangar on it and display it for all to see.

Georgeous! I so admire your commitment to finishing this project! I'm a little envious of your skill and patience, but it is well worth your effort to stay with it.

I've been following this thread, and can't even imagine the patience it takes to do a project of this magnitude! It's beyond me, but the quilt is beyond beautiful too! Talk about heirloom quilts...this is one for the record books!

Well, it's been over a year since I've posted about my Little Brown Bird quilt. Shortly after that last post I fell and broke my arm. The top ball of my upper arm bone snapped right off and I was unable to make any stitches for about 4 months. LBB got set down once again and time passed. Before being able to pick it up again I had to make my youngest grandson's wedding quilt and finish up 7 vintage quilt tops for a cousin.

But, the arm is doing well (no snow angels ever again) and I'm inching closer and closer to the finish on LBB. I'm doing the borders now and figure I have roughly 40 hours of embroidery work to get them ready to attach to the body of the quilt. After that, I'll have to applique leaves and birds on the mitered corners and then, of course the embellishment has to be done as well. It will have to be hand quilted. I plan on working on that this winter if I can get the top finished up in the next few months. Thanks for staying with me all these years while I get this monster done. You'll never know how much encouragement you've given me along the way. I appreciate it so much.
