little birds

My friend Judy wanted something special to give her brother for his new baby, and we both collaborated on this design of a tree with 28 birds. Each bird represents one of her family members, with the new baby being #28.
  I had a lot of fun making this, and it was a big hit at the baby shower!

more holiday spirit

I had this tree idea in my head and was inspired by this super deep red fabric called "Road To Marrakech" by Studio e fabrics. I didn't like the fabric i chose for the last tree, i thought the star didn't pop out as much.  Then the Denyse Schmidt blue really finished the whole thing for me. Red, Yellow and Blue is my all time most favorite color combination, and here it some how works for a Christmas tree.

quilting fail

i love doing hand-work, but i keep stabbing myself. At least the blood is on the back of the quilt!
