Wings and Pretty Things

Good morning lovely folks. Well nothing exciting to report from my neck of the woods except on the stitching front. Finally all these little blocks....
Have become this.....

My "Wings and Pretty Things " is officially a flimsy now. After some quilting magic happens I am going to bind it in the beautiful red spot that started this whole quilt.
Now thats its 'officially' finished, I can 'officially' begin Natures Journey.  As I told you in a precious post I have the centre background pieced and ready to go. But on studying the pattern closer I decided I wasn't a fan of the different block in each corner of the final border. Call me anal but I decided to change it to 4 blocks the same and that being 4 hexie flowers.....so that was my first foray into the new quilt.....little hexies!
More of this happened too.....
So there are now 3 Flowerville blocks assembled....
I do love those fabrics.....please excuse my daggy '70s carpet in my sewing cave....but it keeps me warm! Lol!
Over the past couple of weeks I have dived between the covers of these two books. Courtesy of my dear Daughter and enjoyed both....but to be honest I was hoping for different endings *sigh*
Now if I can manage to move myself from my beautiful sunny spot I have a little bird on my drawing board wanting attention.
To all my friends in Victoria. I am thinking of you. Please stay safe.
Happy stitching!
Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx

  1. such a beautiful quilt above Michelle. I forgot about the stichville - I have that to start also. Gosh I'm terrible. I've really been inspired by cross stitch of late. So many nice things to occupy my mind in these troubled times. Our covid cases here in Vic at the worst ever today. I think we will all be in lockdown again soon. Take care.

  5. Oh, Michelle - that is such a pretty quilt! So are your flowery blocks. Did the books not have happy endings? Sometimes that is just the way it has to be.

  13. Love your cute appliqued birdie! Nothing wrong with changing things on a quilt to appease one's own eyes. I rather like it. Well done finishing it. We are keeping safe but have absolutely no faith in our Premier or PM. So many mixed messages and such ineptness is staggering. Questions are being asked to no avail.

  14. This is a fantastic flimsy finish. Love all the gorgeous detail in your work. And the red spot binding will be perfect.
    And the Flowerville blocks are looking wonderful.

  15. Wings is beautiful Michelle - I have loved watching this quilt grow. Cant wait to see it all beautifully quilted as well. Are those little 1/2" hexies? Your Flowerville blocks look great - so many little pieces but the effect is beautiful. xx
