Oy.

The next block definitely has fewer pieces (yes, I counted!). I think I'll take a little bit of a break before beginning that one. whew

Fused (and not reversed... AGAIN) but not sewn down yet. I won't do any sewing down until the end, probably. No point in doing all those thread changes over and over... plus I think if it's sewn into a quilt, that will help deter shrinkage from stitching the little pieces down.

I don't think I had enough contrast between the reds, but in person it's a little bit better.

Here's the detail of the (modified and inked) eyes. I'm not sure if I'm going to pop in a little white "reflection dot" or not. (Sorry for the lighting, it's late!)


Oh, and these are definitely GIRL birds, so not Tylenol and Advil. More like Ginger and Marilyn... ;)

So beautiful both Gimpy and Fibber but you two are sort of putting me off with all your talk of tiny pieces LOL and I'm thinking machine stitching them may be harder than I thought but it is so beautiful...hmmm decisions Undesided

Gimpy and Fibber, both of yours are lovely :)

Gimpy, you have inspired me to practice needleturn agian.

Fibber, I think your colour contrast is good.

Golo, hope you dont mind me asking but what machine stitch did you use? I am trying out a few different ones but so far not found one that is small and neat enough!

Had to read wayyy back to catch up on this thread

1. You are all doing a great job

2. I'm glad I'm not doing this job lmao

Its a great pattern. I considered redworking it up but its a bit beyond my talents at this time.
I'll enjoy watching this develop

Tracy..your birds look pretty good to me! Fabrics just don't show up as well in pics as they do in person. I like the fabrics you used for your legs and beaks. I guess I'm more of a literal girl too? When I did my chicken quilt one breed had blue legs..and they sure didn't look right to me! LOL The eyes on my chickens were less than a 1/4" across..and a bit tricky to needle turn, but doable. I opted for the white dot in those..again..I'm more of a literal person? I don't think I've ever done any birds/animals in fantasy colors/fabrics? Maybe that should be a personal challenge to myself?

Tracy... nice... love your eyes on your birds....
Polly I used a blanket stitch and made it smaller on my machine... I use that stitch the most because I like the look, but I have tried others.... fun to experitment...

CC you are definetely experienced enough to do this... don't let these gals scare you off.... I thought they were both quite easy using the sewing machine for a lot of the small stuff.....

Golo, I tried blanket stitch on my machine but the smaller you make it the chunkier it gets, but I really like the look too. I have a couple of different options for blanket stitch on the machine...i will try them all

thank you
Polly :)

Tracey love your birds, I like your fabric selection too, they do show up, it always hard when you take pics of tone on tone colours, they can look blended but yours definatly arent. Your eyes are great, love the curled lashes adn the yellow beak/legs look beautiful. Cant wait to see your next one!

Tracy..it looks like she used polka dot fabric too? I had just the thing here..in a dark red and a brighter version of the same thing. As soon as I saw those Poms I knew that fabric would work.

Norma..I didn't have any problems..but there's more than one way to do it. Are you using the adobe pdf..or the Scribd version?

And just in case anybody needs it..I thought I'd put the link here too.

I tried both and it keeps saying it's down loading but nothing. I'm on dial up but never takes that long with any of the other ones. Norma

Norma..maybe the site is overwhelmed right now because she just posted the new block? You may have to try tomorrow? Boy that has to be frustrating to try to download it and try it more than once and not get it! angry

This month's pattern file is HUGE. Three times the size of any of the other files.

Let me know if you can't get it to download, I have a compressed (zipped) copy.

My friend has finished her Block #3 of Orange Delicious. I have block #2 traced (reversed this time, even!), but that's as far as I am so far. :roll:



She said she'd never inked a quilt before - and it's addictive! She doesn't think that the lace will be noticeable by anyone but her, but the close up is pretty cool:

The apple looks so real and 2D, its like she slipped a photo into the quilt, I love it in red. I got to wondering, thats a dangerous thing for me but what if - each block was done in a different colour, say block 1 in reds, block 2 in purples or blues, block 3 in say oranges, etc. Wonder how that would look at the end - just wondering LOL
