The original pattern was published in 2010 in Quilter's World as White Birches, and recently in a book called Quilting in Black and White. First correct guess was from Sharon at Vroomans Quilts. Congrats to her.
I thought the give away hint would be on Saturday and the Foto Finish link to Cat Patches because Barbara is working on the same project and in her post she named the pattern! So, here's a photo of the original pattern I am working from. Note the cardinals.....that is what drew me in, and I am adding a few more of them. It just shouted "make me"! I have all the blocks together and ready to join the rows.
Mrs. Claus News:
Photo shoot day is Friday.....the photo shoot of the elves went great!
PT was today.....I began lifting weights, or a weight. A one pound weight! I know, I know.... I have a long way to go. I was so glad to know that I can at least lift more than a piece of paper without help. Maybe soon I will be able to lift a bolt of fabric. Happy stitching.
