Birdies Have Flown The Coop

As you might remember, I have recently finished my Birdie Stitches top.  Although I was completely happy with the colors, fabrics, stitching in this quilt, it just was not singing to me.  I could never figure out why it did not make my heart flutter.  The plan was to finish it off and donate it to Project Linus as it's a lovely quilt...just for someone else.  



That is...until I saw this:  


You're on, Miss Elisa!  Everyone wins!  Elisa gets a top she likes, I am THRILLED it will be wanted and cared for and Project Linus gets a donation.  Fantastic!  I happily packed up Birdie Stitches and popped it into the post.  Well, it arrived at Elisa's recently and it seems to be settling in nicely.  I can't wait to see where you take this, Elisa.  Thank you so much for giving it a warm welcome to a happy home.  Pop on over to Postpartum Quilter later today (due to the time difference) and you can hear all about our Birdies' migration and new family.

Agreed. Very generous of you--that's a lot of time doing all the embroidery--I'm WAY behind on my blocks. But a good solution. And it will be well loved for sure.

It is the highest compliment, to have your work coveted by another quilter. Fantastic that you were able to work this out, knowing that your little Birdies will be well taken care of!
