First Block Done.... my only confusion was on the size to cut the background.,. It said finished size 16.5 x 6.5 so I added for the seams and cut 17 x 6 .. I fused everything and sewed by machine only.

Golo looks fantastic, I got to see it first though LOL I was talking to golo earlier today ;-) AOL no gloria didnt do a typo, htere are two sets of measurements refered to in the instructions, one seems to have a seam allowance added, one doesnt. I went with the 16 1/2" measure, gloria cut a bit bigger to be safe

I have not started this one yet, so far I have been reading the instructions and what's been written here. I just have a couple of questions
Is what your saying Helen is that you should/could applique the scalloped edge before you add the sashing?
I dont have the plastic Esther mentions for the templates, just bondaweb and freezer paper.
There seems to be details on the patterns such as the wings on the birds that have not been used, are these just embroidery lines?
What colour have you lot used for the sashing, i cant seem to see what colour Esther uses. Not sure if its black, brown or a dark red.

Thank you if anyone can help.....i cant wait to get started on this.
By the way Golo yours looks great....I hope I can get mine as accurate as yours :)
And Helen, thanks for the nudge for this one ;-)

Love and hugs
polly

Polly the bottom seam on the scalloped piece, it needs to be sewed into the bottom sashing pieces seam, see how glorias is. just pin the scallop piece to the block then pin your sashing piece and sew it on. I too think a lot of the details are embroidered on or drawn on later, its not that well explained. I just traced the pieces onto copy paper, cut them out then sat the paper templates onto fabric, drew around them with pencil and cut them out allowing enough seam to turn under (Im needle turning) I finished cutting all the pieces out while bob and laura went for a quick walk in the bush today. Hope that helps, ask away if you want to know more

I'm not doing this one, because I have a few other quilts in progress. I don't usually do more than 2 or 3 at a time..but started a couple and set them aside. I need to pick those back up and finish before starting any more applique. Generally, I save my applique projects for the Summer months and quilt/piece during the Winter months. I'm just following along here and watching the progress you all are making. It's a beautiful quilt and I can't wait to see more!

Polly remember its your block and if its a little different thats what makes it unique...it doesn't have to be mirror image...I fused everything ... my bottom scalloped piece was fused after the black sashing was added but I did sew the bottom of it.. I did think of sewing it in with the sashing, but didn't... I don't think the plastic is needed just use your freezer paper if you are going to needle turn.. I am anxious to see Gimpy's... and FibberBabble how are you doing???

Only at the collecting phase so far. There's an art quilt that's supposed to be auctioned on Jan. 5 that I haven't been working on since the snow :/ and I've also signed up for Tonya's House, Home or Pantry Quilt-Together - a free-style piecing exercise/project.

I have my fabrics, though (my friend and I traded stacks of reds for stacks of oranges so we both have a larger stash for this project! :) ) and the spirit is willing.

Heh. Now I just need to get through Christmas!! lol!

Thank you for all your suggestions. I have managed to find a few reds in my stash,and even cut a couple of cotton summer tops I don't wear anymore. The patterns are all cut and so I am ready to go..... :)
Golo I was thinking of doing the sashing either a dark reddy brown but could'nt find any so black was my second choice.
Helen, I really do admire anyone who can needleturn, but its just not a technique I have ever got to grips with. I did think about giving it another go but when I saw the birds feet i though....'Lifes too short' so out came the bondaweb :))

Polly, I had wanted to do the sashing in a dark burgandy, but didn't have enough so like you out came the black... my second block is all cut and pressed now to outline it... lots of work to that one... and I cut the block 17 x 10 and am really glad I did... it even suggested cutting bigger and then cutting it down, but I don't think there is room to cut it down.. no sashing sewn to this one because I don't know where it goes on the quilt.... the mystery deepens... LOL

Why not join us just for a block or two, make them into wallhangings or cushions, as gift for next xmas. gives you a good reason you "need to join' but no pressure

When I copied the first pattern I had no intention of doing the whole thing as a quilt.. I thought I would just do wallhanging.....but if they are all this nice it will end up into a quilt... so go for it IamBM.....

thank you for your words of encouragement. So far I love the design of this quilt/wall hanging. I have just realized that my birds don't have eyes Thud

I best get on the case of the birds with the missing eyes lmao
