Friday Finish and Winner!


I finally finished my first robin piece. It is a design by Sarah Sporrer. The pattern was given to me by my friend Karen, along with some of her older patterns in the monthly series. It was fun to work on and a nice piece to hang for spring.

I added a few extra words on mine, the chirr-up is what a robin call sounds like and is said to sound like  cheer up, so I thought that would be fun to add. I hope you enjoy my newest piece. It is much darker and prim in person.

It is raw edge with fusible, and I hand quilted the piece with dmc floss, thought it is hard to see in some places. Also, the robin is standing on a carrot. I saw the design and saw a carrot, then I actually read the directions and saw that it said white for the snow, lol. So, somehow my brain came up with a carrot instead of snow, but I think it makes it fun;)

And now for the winner.... The winner is .......... Jacquie! Please email me with your choice of epattern from my ecrater site. I had fun reading all of your ghost stories and I think we all have similar stories and folk lore in our areas.

I wish you all a wonderful Easter and blessings no matter what spiritual path you follow.

Cute quilt! Happy Easter!

The carrot makes the little quilt design uniquely your own. If you had not mentioned that the robin was supposed to be on snow, I doubt most people would have known that a carrot was not part of the pattern.
