Birdie Stitches: April 2011-June 2011

Yeeeeaaaah. I got a little behind on stitching and documenting this one, kittens. 2 of the 3 blocks had to be heavily altered…a.k.a: drawn from scratch. I finally played catch up last night and today.

April’s block is one of the two that I drew up on my own. I even stuck a little Totoro in there for The Girl. As soon as I saw the next month’s block, I knew my theme would work out just fine.

Yes. May Flowers. I changed very little in this block and was super happy with the composition and concept. The Girl absolutely LOVES this block.

And then June happened. While I like the idea of the text somewhere on the quilt, it felt really out of place with the other blocks to date. Thanks to Katie‘s suggestion, I had a theme for the block and worked on it today. It turned out OK. It’s not my favorite block, but it works.

But yay! I’m caught up on Birdie Stitches until July.
