Birdie Stitches BOM- January

I've been seeing these cute birdie blocks all over blogland this month. At last, I couldn't resist. I figured that I could handle one block a month, even with my busy schedule. Therefore, I'm joining in on Little Miss Shabby's Birdie Stiches Block of the Month! I've never really done embroidery before. I started a pillowcase once, but I just added thread however I wanted. I didn't learn the proper embroidery stitches. This is the perfect time to learn a few embroidery stitches. This block uses the back stitch and french knots. Needle 'n Thread is a great site that has wonderful tutorials on embroidery stitches. For this quilt, I decided to use my last layer cake of Bliss. The block was easy to put together, and I love how it turned out. I can't wait to see what each month's block will be!


  1. I was looking through the flickr gallery...I love your colors. Might you tell me the name of the fabric 5th down on the right side...the one with the seed pod looking things. I need some! ;D
