Getting Centered

Hooray - My 4 blocks are done and pieced together.

I miscalculated and wasn't able to get a feather in the center.  Don't ask me how that happened, but suffice it to say that I'm not a mathematical whiz.

I decided to add the flower element and leaves.  I think I will make the stuffed berry red like on the feather centers, so to avoid a bull eye effect.

My little birdie looks very happy to flying around the center area.

I'm looking forward to planning the borders soon.  It will probably wait until after the olympics, but we'll see.

I saw today in the cross country portion of the Horse competition that they have a "Diamond Jubilee" jump - way to go London!


  1. Barb,
    Little birdie got my attention. So cute dancing around the squares. One question, Did you mean for the bottom one to be rebellious and not follow the pattern?

  2. Lovely Barb! I really like how you took care of the center. The applique looks fantastic! I have birds ready to applique on my jubilee too!!

  3. That's called making lemonade :). This is such a great quilt on so many levels. Love it!!

  4. Your quilt is fabulous, and I think a rebellious bird is a good thing.

  5. The quilt math gets me too sometimes :0( I really like your center though - a good solution! The birds look wonderful. I can't wait to see what you do for borders.
