What do you think? I've been making large hexagons for Lynne's Hexalong, and I made this.
Now, I'm not quite sure about it. It's kinda funky and I think it plays tricks on my eyes.
It's interesting but I wonder what you think?
Is the fabric wrong? Is just the whole design wrong?
I think I'll hang on to it until I'm done with all the rest and see if it fits in anywhere on the quilt.
I'm I the only one who feels this way?

I had a few extra HSTs and made two pillows. Well, the pillows aren't actually made yet, but they will be....
Here's to a productive week for you and me!

Here are some pictures of the blocks that I've made using most of the Birdie Stitches pattern that Corey from Little Miss Shabby has created. (I like the last one, he looks like he's stopping to smell the flowers.)
I've made a set of birdies for my niece, Hannah, who's Mommy and Daddy have decorated her room with birds. But my niece, Jael's Mommy and Daddy love miniature dachshunds, so I went with this cute doggy!
I've enjoyed having a late night project that is quiet. It's something to do while my husband and I are relaxing and watching TV together. (Well, he's watching, I'm just being there with him, yet being productive.)

I have much in store for this weekend. Two more Swoon block to finish, then I'll be done with the quilt top! I think I'm going to use a sheet for the back of the quilt. Or maybe just muslin. I like how soft those are. And they seem to be more economical. Do you know of a better option? It's just so much fabric for the back...let me know what you think!
Have a great Friday!

She's giving away this awesome bundle here:
Just check it out, it's her blogiversary.
Lily's Quilts is giving away a Go Baby Cutter here.
Enter for your chance to win!
I'm dying to get this finished, because it might actually go on my bed! We'll see how the hubby likes it. Right now, he uses the family tree quilt I made him and I use my son's old comforter....no, I'm not posting pictures...it's not a pretty sight.
Anyway, I will go to the store when I get a break from these 3 boys, because they absolutely hate going to the quilt store with me. (I've been known to use it as a motivational tool, "Clean your room or we won't go on a bike ride, we'll just go to Joann's instead!" You should see how fast they move.)

It was a little more time-consuming for this one, probably because it was my first block and because of the directional fabric. I wanted to make sure all the little birdies were right side up.
I'm linking with Esther's Blog for herWOW-Work in progress on Wednesday (even though it's still Tuesday here in the Miami, FL!

Lovely Quilt, a set on Flickr.
This is my Lovely Quilt. No really, it's made using Sandy Gervais' line Lovely.
It was fun and easy to make. It's just a disappearing nine patch then a few borders to compliment.
I used two charm packs and complimentary fabrics from my fabric store.
The backing is pretty close to the same color as was in the original line. I thought it was a great addition for the backing.
The quilting was done by me on the sewing machine...I really want a long arm quilting machine. I did a new kind of flower that (I think) I came up with on my own. But it seems that when I think it's my own, someone else out there has had the same idea. Anyway, the border is a scroll patterns.
Another finished quilt in 2011! This one's for sale, but if I don't get what I want for it, I'll give it as a gift in December. :)
