Tweet Tweet! Hi there. Here is another peek at a quilt I'm making for a swap. It's for the Doll Quilt Swap 6 swap.
I've been doing some lurking on my partner's blog and fickr photos for clues to what she likes and this is part of the design I've come up with. I hope she will like it.
Now, I hope you realise that these are supposed to be bird houses/boxes. After spending hours making them I asked my 7 year old what he thought they were. The conversation went a bit like this:
Me: "What do you think these are?"
Him: "Um, Houses?"
Me: "Yes, but what type of houses?"
Him: "Flats?" (apartments)
Me: "What with doors like that? They're bird boxes"
Him: "Oh, right"
I had a similar conversation with my husband who thought the stands were paths leading to the front door!
I then decided to add the birds, which I hope clarify what it's supposed to be.
I think I should have made the houses longer and thinner. But never mind I rather like them myself.
It's a work in progress at the moment, you may be able to see that the blanket stitching around some of the birds isn't finished yet. I 'm making some flying geese blocks now to add to it.
I've been without a computer for the last week and have really missed reading blogs and following what others have been upto on the doll quilt flickr. I'm sure I wouldn't have got as far with my swap items if the computer had been up and running so maybe it hasn't been a bad thing. I'm sure a lot of other people spend too much time blogging too!
Bye for now, Maria
