Floating Birdies

009, originally uploaded by myittybittyquilts.

This is for our winter doll quilt swap at www.sewingmamas.com. I sure hope the recipient likes it. I had another top totally done, but I really wasn't happy with it. I went downstairs to talk to my stash and these fabrics jumped up and said, "Pick me!" I really did want to use the winter bird fabric, but wasn't sure how to properly show them off. I searched all over flickr and the web to find SOMETHING, but had no success. I had to just draft something and it had to be simple. Here is what I came up with. The blocks are finished 3" set in 100% linen.

Long, Long time no see!

Hi, friends!  I really have missed the occasional blog post.  Life is settling down to a just busy pace, rather than horribly, frantically busy pace.  DH returned from Iraq about a month ago, so we are so thankful for that.  The kids are busy in school with just the little guy at home with me now.

Here are some pictures of recent projects.
