Beautiful Bird Tree Blog Hop

                                                     
                                              
"Birds On The Wing"

Here they look adrift on a bank of snow in my backyard.

It is not easy for me to go out and take good photos right now.

Nor is it easy to do everyday things.

My vision is healing much more slowly than I had hoped after this surgery.

After the procedure on the first eye, I had a baby quilt pieced and quilted in two weeks.

This time is a different story.

          I had planned to have at least two projects with these beautiful fabrics for you.

I am sorry that did not happen but I here is my project.

My top is done and I am working on getting it quilted.

Healing is one day and one stitch at a time.


This quilt design is my own.

I was inspired by these

Beautiful Birds by Tracy Lizzote for Elizabeth's Studio

fabrics to design this quilt!

                             
            
I <3 this quilt in the making!


           This is the top to my new spring sofa quilt.

It is a new pattern that I have created for these fabrics.


I am calling this pattern "On The Wing".


I carefully cut and placed all the directional fabrics and will be posting about this on March 30th.

More details soon!


Here is a block for the backing that I made from scrap triangles and fabric.

I sewed this into the back of my quilt ...



Click Here for more photos of the back of my quilt


I love the movement in this pattern so much that I will be making again
it in these solids as soon as I am able.

This new pattern is in the test stage of development and I hope to release it soon.

If you are interested in testing, please send me an email.

Thank you for stopping by today!

     Please be sure to fly into all the beautiful bird trees today

Lovely quilt top - good pattern to show off the fabrics.

Vickie said...

What a pretty quilt Pat! I hope your eye heals quickly !

Debby said...

Sew beautiful! Your quilt makes such good use of those fabrics. I loved seeing what you did.

Suze said...

Pat, I can empathize about eye surgery - the pain of eye surgery; the slow, slow recovery; and not being able to see worth a flip afterward. It's been 15 months since my one and only and I'm still looking for solutions for being able to see things I WANT (like cross stitch cloth). I'm blown away that you completed this flimsy. And the fussy cutting is superb. It is a stunner. I love the design. I'm partial to stars and secondary designs that appear, too. Great job any time, and particularly under the circumstances. Will you be sharing your design? Blessings and prayers for you.

Marian said...

I love the quilt, and such a great way to focus in on a specific piece of fabric. If you need a tester, lemme know I'll be happy to help.
