Alfred Htichcock...

... and his birds have nothing on the flock of them gathering in this house.

I've done a bit more work on One for the Birds.


It is now measuring approximately 38" x 40". I am starting to feel like it is looking like a quilt top. Not nearly big enough obviously, but on its way now.


I want this finished before the end of September. Sooner preferably. It is at the top of the list with a couple of other things. One more day to the summer holidays to go. Then I just might have some time on my hands occasionally.

  1. Def not a Hitchcock quilt - very beautiful and not a bit scary. I love how you put all these wee birdies in their own frames and your distribution across the quilt top is spot on! Gonna be so good to cuddle under!

  14. Summer has gone by far too quickly. This looks fabulous and not at all the horror created by Alfred Hitchock.
