Birdie Stitches January block

Little Miss Shabby is hosting a quilt along. Each month she's posting an embriodery pattern for the quilt. I'm not using the same fabric as her. My jelly roll is Lollipop by Moda. My solid is Kona Wheat. I really like the way it is turning out so far.

My birdie (I'm not sure why it looks wavy. It's not in real life.)

I used most 3 strands, but some 2 strands for the embroidery.

I'm going to go ahead and make up the rest of the blocks since it was easier to cut them all at once. I can't wait to see what's next!

I love it.Since you taught me to embroider in college, I've done a half a dozen pillow cases and 12 squares for a quilt. I love it and she's yours makes me want to pick it up again soon.

CAR, you should join in on this quilt along. It's super easy sewing and a small amount of embroidery each month.

Your block turned out so cute with this fabric and your choice of threads really pop off the background! And that earmuff...great job!
