I've been reading about the Traveling Stash boxes, but never tried to participate before today. Now I hope I get a chance to claim one and pass it on to someone else. If you are not familiar with the Traveling Stash Box, check out Snuggle Up with a Dish from Karma.
Random Generator picked Vickie! She has been emailed for her info. Thanks to everyone who visited my blog during the hop and left such sweet comments.
Thought you might like to see what she won: candy squares ( approx 100 - 2 1/2 inch squares). They were mailed to Vickie on Friday the 24th.
It's time to show my creation for the It's for the Birds blog hop. Before we get to that, I want to thank Mary for being our cheerleader, Madame Samm for her inspiration and our sponsor Clothworks La Cage au Birdie .
I had seen a drawing similar to this hanging at a friends house and thought I would try to recreate it. This is my first attempt at machine quilting. I hand appliqued the rooster and chick, then used a stitch in background that reminded me of chickens and a straight stitch in the border. This is a 12 inch finished mini quilt on my Ackfeld table top hanger. I am pleased with how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit all the creators for today:
