Tail Feathers

 After months of procrastinating Tail Feathers is finally underway with block 1 completed today.

 
 I enjoyed stitching each of the mini blocks. This one's called 'Tree of Delight.'


Even the satin stitch was fun!



 The block below is called 'Those Love Birds.'
 

  A mix of stitchery and applique keeps it interesting and I LOVE working with the Patisserie fabrics. Nine blocks to go!


Tomorrow I'll be posting a parcel off to Peg for our latest Friends in Stitching swap. Photos soon ... I promise.  This week is the last week off term in Tasmania so fingers crossed I'll get this blog active again during the holidays.

    I started on my tail feathers this past weekend. I stitched the little bird applique block first. Hopefully will get time to do the other two stitcheries today. It's so pretty!

  15. Your quilt is going to be beautiful Christine and Patisserie is such a gorgeous fabric range. My quilt has been so close to being finished for weeks - one border to quilt but other things keep cropping up.

  22. It's beautiful - I had been wondering if you were stitching on Tail Feathers. I took a few months break from mine after Christmas and just started on block 8 last week.
