LIttle Bluebirds of Happiness

This little quilt makes me happy every time I look at it. It was a real joy to stitch up and took no time at all. It is a pattern by Sandy Gervais called Soul Mates and it is made from a Charm Pack from her Frolic line of fabric. The pattern has full color pictures of the fabrics and exactly where she used each piece. But of course I never actually read the directions until I've worked myself into a corner, so mine don't match her choices exactly but that is ok. I love how fat and sassy these little guys look. Too bad fat and sassy isn't considered a good look for a middle age woman - LOL

I got this pattern and the charm pack one morning at Fabric Shack in Waynesville, started sewing after lunch and had the whole thing finished up right after dinner - practically instant gratification - I love that. I was pleased with myself for the quilting I did on this. If you click on the picture I think you can see that I did a viney kinda thing with leaves and then I sewed buttons on by the leaves to be little berries. awwww....too cute..

I need to do more of these little projects. Usually I end up making BIG quilts - they just get away from me - so doing something small and quick is very satisfying. I'll have to show you some of the Schnibbles I've been doing with friends. I've got several tops sewn but not quilted - need to get around to finishing them.

Happy stitching,

    Although I'm in California now, I grew up in the mid-west. Must be something in the water to make us adhd, but it works for me. As soon as my camera battery is charged, I'll take a picture of my chicken quilt. If you like it, I'll send you the pattern.
