Show and tell, Birds in Toyland…

Amy Fisher sent in this photo of her newly finished Birds in Toyland quilt. I love that she embraced the applique, embellishing, and hand quilting to make a wonderful quilt that she and her family are sure to treasure. Read more below…

Of course, life happened… but I finally finished my quilt on Monday. I enjoyed the entire process. I’m not the best hand quilter, but I got better by the end.  I had never done well at appliqué, but I got better the more I did. I absolutely loved figuring out how I wanted to embellish each piece. And I loved the embroidery part. I used a turkey stitch on many of the hats. But I would never do the lettering the same again…even though I like how it turned out: all those French knots and beads! Took forever!

Thank you so much for all of your videos, all of your clear explanations. Your friendly personality is what simply makes it all special.

  1. This is a wonderful quilt. I like the way the little Christmas scenes are set up by the “Around the world” pattern (at least I think it is that). Great work!.

  4. What a great job, Amy. Remember that “finished” is always better than “perfect”. It is easy to be part of the Quilt Police. I love Becky’s patterns and teaching, too.
