Many think of April as Easter, Flowers, Spring - it means to me the return of all our favorite little nesting birds. A time when we clean and ready the many nesting boxes and bird houses around the farm. So I chose to make one of our little feather friends' house that hangs from the old (only) birch. The paint isn't as bright any more, but thought this was what it originally looked like. And I added some 3-D leaves and of course - buttons.
I love seeing all the 'Swoon' blocks evolving around the net, but really did not like the thought of a 24" block. Being a scrap quilter who loves to work "tiny", I made a Swoon block using 1.5" blocks and HSTs. Yes - an 8" Swoon - don't you just love it? Just had to photo it in the bed of Flox because that's what it reminds me of. And I am seriously thinking a whole quilt!
And my 'May For Me' Bingo Card will be hanging here during the May quilt bingo game. Being one of the sponsors/hostess, I can only play for fun - and what fun we are going to have. Click on our button on the side bar for more information - it's a month long celebration.
Here are some of my mini's that have had their turn on the Table Top Hanger. At 12" x12" - it will even handle a 14" length - they are quick to make, easy to change a decor, and instant gratification. Your only limitation is your creativity. Please be sure to visit today's other hosts and MSamm - leave a little love.
And being in the Spring mood and building excitement of May For Me - I have a give away - a Jelly Roll of Deb Strain's 'Meadow Friends' for Moda. I will ship international so don't be bashful ** Jelly Roll opened for photo purpose only ** Winner to be announced April 26th **
** winner of the jelly roll was Deb of Stitchin Therapy and confirmation has been made - package mailed out 4/26/12 **
