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.
