bloggers quilt festival

Here is my entry into the 2010  bloggers quilt festival , head on over to see all the entries 



So, this is the birdy quilt I made for my sister 
It was so much fun to make although my first attempt at machine applique leaves a little lot to be desired 

All the birdy fabrics were chosen by my sister from the stash , it was the first time I had worked with a real eclectic mix of colours & fabrics  . 
I was also having a small obsession with all things birdy.




I love the bright yellow inner border , I think it brings all the birds to life !!



So thats mine , where's yours ??
