The Queen Bee for June for the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild requested a bird themed block.  We could use bird fabric, applique or embroider a bird, just incorporate a bird into the block.  I did a raw edge applique bird and think it's so cute.  I hope she likes it!

I was so inspired by the idea that I broke out the fat quarter pack of Feather n Stitch by Sarah Watts (LOVE!) that I found at TUESDAY MORNING!!!  I decided to try and embroider the birds from the fabric and plan on building a mini quilt around the embroidery.

I'm also working on the binding for my $10BOM quilt.  I decided to go with a scrappy binding using the leftover solid strips.  I'm loving this quilt.

Finishing up a UFO

Today I loaded a UFO on the frame and managed to get it quilted.  Hopefully this week I'll get the binding sewn on.

I also finally finished knitting my red beaded lace shawl - FINALLY!!!  Now I just need to get it blocked and some photo's taken.  I have been busy in the sewing room I just haven't been taking as many photo's lately.  Hopefully I'll get some downloaded to the computer soon.

Here is a picture of a quilt for my younger niece - I figured it was time for her to have something new from her Auntie.
