Old Crow Mini Quilt!


It has been a slow week, sometimes family matters take precedence, but I was able to finish my new quilt piece today. I will work on the pattern so a release of that, will be later in the week.

I want to keep the quilted pieces small so they can be printed out as is for a pattern. For this piece I used fusible raw edge. The pattern will include the crow punch.

Unfortunately my brain is still crooked and the lettering is a bit wonky, but that was me and maybe a shift in the backing when I traced on the words. The saying came from an old poem and I reworded it to fit the piece. I thought it should be a fun piece and can be done with spring or fall colors.

I would love your thoughts on the new piece, other than the fact that I cannot sew a straight line;) The pattern itself is straight.

On another note, the postcard arrived at it's destination, with no damage. Tonight I made up another drawing that I can paint and maybe we can do another giveaway. It is fun to make them and I love sharing them with others. Jennifer made a beautiful frame to put hers in, you can see it at her blog, The Country Mouse.

Our crows have thick black bills but yours is so cute. I like the plaid fabrics in the border and I think the writing is fine. I'll bet this would make a nice red-work as well.

The crow is my second favorite bird (after the vulture) and I really love this piece. The poem is so perfect.

I like the crow piece very much. The wording looks good to me. Besides, if it is a little crooked, it adds to the prim charm.
