gift quilt

I can finally post pictures of the group quilt I recently finished. The recipient (who reads this sometimes) got the quilt over the weekend. She is a bird person , so each participant was asked to make a snowball block: center any color bird fabric, corners white on white. One lady never got the word about the white centers. I did think about changing it, but her block really lent itself to the blue. I think it adds a bit of character and picks up the border. Another chatter pieced the top. I did the border, backing, quilting, and my friend helped me with the binding. I like the way it turned out! What do you think?





This is the back. I used up all the leftover blocks. The top and bottom print is an all over bird house fabric. There were 2 pieces just languishing in my stash! They found a good home with all the birds.




Saturday was my Blog-a-versary! Thank you all for reading and for commenting. I have enjoyed this 1st year and made lots blogging friends!
