Cousins Walk Bird Sampler from Humble Quilts

Here is a reminder of the quilt and the lovely border.

Here is what I have completed. 

The border is my "winter" project. We've had a couple of evenings in the 30's so it feels like winter will be here before I know it! (boo-hoo!) 

Be back next Monday! Enjoying summer when I can!

Cousins Walk Bird Sampler from Humble Quilts

TaDA! I got the center of the Cousin's Walk sample together!

Because of the bird direction I was challenged! LOL But I htink I did it as the original antique quilt. 

I did contemplate setting it so all the birds were facing one direction, but I do enjoy the quirkiness of them being a bit different. 

Here is the antique and as you can see I have quite a bit more to do!
If you are wondering this pattern is out of print and no longer available.

I hope your week is going great!

Thank you all so much ...

Fun on a Friday! from Humble Quilts

Here is my friend Laurie's Cousins Walk bird sampler completed! I have to say I'm struggling with the amount of muslin, but with it quilted it looks lovely.

She had it hand quilted and used silk batting.

 I've never used silk. She loves the way it drapes. Do any of you have thoughts on silk batting?
I'm hoping to start getting my center together next week than I'll have the borders to applique. 

I met a friend to go hiking last Sunday. 

How beautiful is this view? Wow! That is Mt Hood and Laurence Lake ...

Cousins Walk Bird Sampler from Humble Quilts

Looking forward to getting this center laid out and sewn together! I'm laying them out so I can see them all easily. The antique is set in a fun and folksy way. 
 It is likely I'll go with the antique setting. 
Here's a shy bird that I had been trying to get a photo of the entire week while in Hawaii. There was 2 of them hanging around together, but cropped this up close to see him/her better. It is called a saffron finch. 
Here's a stock photo. So pretty!

And, why did the chickens ...

Cousin's Walk and Possible Center Block from Humble Quilts

I finished the final 3 blocks! Tweet! Tweet! 

I loved the center on the original, but wanted to come up with something different from those who have made this quilt. Here's a small paper pieced section.

And then 2 more. It will be slow going since I'm not the best at paper piecing, especially triangle shapes. 

My friend Paula drafted it on Electric Quilt for me. I posted on the Facebook group, Humble Quilts,  because I wasn't sure how to piece this. So many great ideas and lovely photos of quilts others have done with a compass ...

Mid Week Funday from Humble Quilts

What a jam packed week so far! All in good ways. 

I completed one more bird block. I only have greens to applique on the remaining blocks.
Can you believe I cannot remember my middle of the night "great setting idea"? I'm beginning to think I dreamed a great idea and didn't really have one. LOL
PS, This block is part of the quilt Cousin's Walk, now out of print.

Monday I prepared for a guild lecture, "Quilts Through the Seasons" I love doing these but don't think I'll ever get used to taking to ...

Productive Weekend from Humble Quilts

Over the weekend I managed to get the binding sewn on the Anniversary Quilt. It is 94x88. I'm feeling great that I am at the stage of hand sewing the binding down.

I asked Sharon to quilt in a few words and she asked if she could put in a few more. I love the up close and personal view we get when hand sewing the binding. 

I got a little more machine applique done on the bird sampler, Cousin's Walk. Funny, the other night I had a great idea for a different border, but for the life ...

Monday Muse from Humble Quilts

Here are the last 8 birds on the Cousin's Walk Bird Sampler.  (out of print, not available any longer)

I'm machine appliqueing and doing one color at a time. I'm down to red and green. 

Hubby and I took a day trip to the Yakima area to check out a hike for a possible future backpacking trip. It snowed a good part of the 3 1/2 hours there, which should have been an indication of how our day was going. 

Beautiful views but hardly a tree in sight, Supposedly there is one somewhere called birdsong tree ...

Tweet Tweet from Humble Quilts

I'm slowly making my way to the Cousin's Walk bird Sampler.

This bird looks a wee bit chubby. lol

We went out to shoot my new gun last night and the sky was lit! It was amazing! Let's have a great week!

Cousin's Walk Bird Sampler from Humble Quilts

I've got a few more bird blocks completed on my Cousin's Walk Sampler. 

I'm enjoying finding some prints to fussy cut on the flowers so I don't have to make a center for each one.

I'm going to make it a terrific week- what about you?

Cousin's Walk Bird Sampler from Humble Quilts

I've completed 4 more bird blocks of the Counsin's Walk quilt.

We had a beautiful Saturday with temperatures in the mid-50's! I never want to lose an opportunity to get out because I know cold and snow is coming!!

I've been to Smith Rock quite often but took a new-to-me trail! 
I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a terrific week!
