Welcome little birdies....to the Bird Tree Blog Hop!!!!



Hello my little Birdies...
I am so happy you have joined us today!!!!
THANK YOU Madame Samm for ALL your SUPPORT
and for choosing these LOVELY fabrics!!!
I am so in LOVE with these!!!!
When Tracy Lizotte designed this line for
Elizabeth's Studio...she created pure beauty....

Shall we take flight?


I wanted to create something a little different with the bird panels...
So, I decided to give myself "snapshots" from my "eye camera" 
of this fabric...
I cut out the panels, attached them matching the background
fabric as best I could...which was pretty easy...
and then free-motioned quilted all around the leaves and 
tree branches...then quilted little tiny meandering stitches 
in the sky background...

I had fun doing it...but boy did it take a LONG time!!!




This made a gorgeously large pillow for my bench in my kitchen...


 And do you see my little wall quilt?
I think it looks a bit like Snow birds
and a bit like Spring... Those pinwheels 
made it look very wintery from this distance...


Finally, I really wanted to showcase those beautiful
little birdie houses...
and although the ticking fabric isn't part of her line...
I just loved that it gave those little
houses just the right contrast...
You can really see her art work and I loved
how this one turned out...
I am calling this one bird houses under glass...
look close and you will see the glass quilted
around the bird houses and the
buttons are the handles on the glass...

  15. Oh, Lana! How beautiful! Your projects make me want to start all over! Like you, I've also had computer issues and was worried about getting a post up. My day is not until Monday, but we will be gone until Tuesday. My post had to be scheduled ahead of time. If not, I think I would start over! Yours have certainly inspired me!

  23. I did wonder where you were but it was worth the wait. Not much we can do when computers decide to have a mind of their own. I like your design and the big Bench Pillow!!.
