Wednesday finish.

Tuesday afternoon I  finished stitching the bird block and started on the tulips and hearts block. I changed up the position of the bird's wing to make him/her look like she just landed on the branch.
 I finished it Wednesday afternoon.
 I'm having fun choosing fabrics for this project.  If you look the bird appears to have an eye nicely placed.
 I think I like the horizontal orientation for the background for the tulips and hearts but will decide when all the blocks are finished.
 Hard to get a picture of the two blocks side by side due to their size but you get the picture.
 I also got a nice surprise in the mail on Tuesday.  Stacy West from Buttermilk Basin gave Anna Bates from The Woolie Mammoth blog some patterns for some giveaways and I was a lucky winner the last go around.  Thanks Stacy and Anna!   Also congratulations to Anna as a new contributor to the Daily Blog as Anna and G On the Road.  Her first post was yesterday.
Off to prep some of the border blocks from Month two.  Working backwards to catch up!

That is a beautiful block and beautiful fabric for it.
Congrats on the win, that will be a fun piece to make.

Both blocks are wonderful. Was that eye on purpose, or serendipity? I do love the tulips block and think the horizontal is the way to go, too. I looked at it sideways, and like it better this way. I love the block you won! That company designs the best things.
