Bird House Finish

 
In A Thimbleberries Housewarming this design is called Hide Away.  My version is a bit brighter due to the yellow fabric.  
Besides having a sweet wall hanging, I was the lucky quilter who this month won the Let's Book It pin that Sharon of Vroomans Quilts awards to one of the participants.  This pin is the cat's meow!

How cute is this?  It reminds me of my grandmother's peddle Singer.  Thank you, Sharon.

I'm hooked on Lynette Jensen's designs now, and got this book from the library.  
I love the cover quilt.

It's a simple star block, but the color usage of the background neutrals just makes it different.

But, I also borrowed a Kim Diehl book and want to make every quilt in it.
As soon as I can get my head out of these books I'll start another project.

I'm recuperating from cutting the grass this afternoon; I picked the most humid day to do it, but I finished before the thunder storms moved in.  

Hope all is well and you get some sewing time.

God Bless!

Congratulations on a beautiful finish - the yellow is a nice pop of bright for that little piece. I have a Kim book - where is that (maybe borrowed) - love her floweres mixed with simple piecing.

I love the birdhouse. Well done. I also like Kim's books and a friend just borrowed 2 from me when she helped unpack my bookcase so that our carpet could be laid over our exceptionally cold tiles. Take care.
