A Blackbird Gathering

Looks what's on my design wall! I was so tempted to follow this little quiltalong Cheri Payne was doing but thought I better stay focused on my own projects. Well, a friend, Linda, said she wasn't feelin' the love and would I like to finish what she started. 

 Uhhhh, of course!
 And it isn't anywhere close to being humble!
 Thank you Linda for sharing your project with me.
 This quilt is on my bed and because I love it so much, I thought I'd share it again!
My instagram feed for this week. 

On tap for this weekend is to clean my sewing room! I have 2 quilts that are being shipped back to me that I want to get ready to bind and finish, but my sewing room is a bit of a disaster!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.

  1. Blackbird Gathering is very nice and I am sure you will have a great time finishing it. Hope you get lots of cleaning/organizing in your sewing room. Your Star quilt looks great on the bed. Have a great weekend.

  4. Wow, what a special friend. It is beautiful. I have no right to comment on your sewing room status. If you can even see the top of your sewing table you are in better shape than I am. It is on my list for an upcoming weekend too!

  7. Lori, Cheri's Blackbird Gatherings is a delightful design. What a wonderful gift from a friend; enjoy finishing it! I love the quilt on your bed! Guess it's that time of year when we all feel the need to clean and reorganize...I'd rather be quilting. LOL

  8. Now that is the kind of friend to have. I saved the patterns for some day as I did not have time to do the blocks. Even better to have part of the work done for you and looks done well.

  18. Love your UFO present - it is beautiful. I enjoyed so much participating in Cheri's Blackbird Gathering. It's great fun to work on something not knowing what is coming next! The quilt on your bed is really joyful with the pink and green zigzags! As always, thanks for the inspiration.

  19. Your stars quilt is beautiful! So many pretty fabrics and colors. A blackbird Gathering is really cute, lucky you to have such a good friend. I love Cheri's patterns, but sadly I am not on Facebook, so I lose out on her free designs. Enjoy!

  20. Boy, that's the way to make a quilt. Have someone else choose the fabrics and do the applique and just finish up. It looks fabulous. You are so lucky!
