Birdie Stitches: January

I have just finished stitching my January Birdie Stitches block.  I like this block just fine, but like the spring blocks a bit more with their flowery detail.  Still, I am pleased to have it finished and am ready to start in on the August block.  Just in time, right?




In other good news, I finished making the binding and the back for Lattice Illusions.  It's basic, so I'll spare you the details until the unveiling of the finished quilt.  I will head to the local quilt shop on Thursday to get the batting and layer the quilt.  I have a quilting plan (I think) that is primarily stitch in the ditch in the center panel and diagonal cross hatch through the borders.  I am looking forward to getting started!

My posting schedule is a bit odd due to my extended holiday, so this post will be linked both with Sew Happy Geek's Manic Monday and Canoe Ridge Creation's Sew Modern Monday linky and Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday.  I'll be back to normal (with any luck) next week.

I'm still so in love with your birdie blocks. I'm auditioning some fabric now so that I can make a set and play super catch up.
