Welcome the Carolina Chickadee

Update to this post:   Can I just tell you how boring it is to sew "wings" on to triangles and squares!  I'm stitching on the Easy Street mystery quilt.  I am so very, very glad I decided to do half the number of blocks. So far, so good, I am on to step 3.

   I mentioned I was working on a  chickadee pattern I got from  Carol at The Landscape Lady .  She does beautiful art quilts and designs patterns for Craftsy.  Her original pattern was wider than long, which I loved, but it did not work for the wire hanger I have.  So, I did a little switching around and made mine longer.    This is basic fused applique with an extra layer of batting behind the chickadee and the pine cone for a little trapunto effect.   Carolina chickadee banner is 13" by 16".  A great winter welcome!
Happy stitching.

  5. Very pretty piece, Debbie.
    (I always read where people say repetitive, mindless sewing is so soothing. I'm with you--I find it boring and I have to break it up with other, more interesting tasks. But we won't tell anyone, okay?)

  6. Your chickadee banner turned out so very, very cute. I like the touch of color in the side borders. That's another unique way to make borders. Thanks for sharing.
