Short Story Quilt top is done tonight :)

I was so happy tonight to finish the top of the Short Story quilt. It is just adorable! It is only 33 x 33" square. I think I'll just stitch in the ditch to finish it up, and then bind it. It was fun to make, and challenging for me, but I did it yay!!
I used Moda fabric, and two charm packs to do this.

Let's see, I placed an order for some stitchery charts by Cinderberry Stitches on Monday and I received my charts today! Great service from Thimblecreek :) I am starting this one for my mother in law. I hope I can get it done by Christmas. She loves little birdhouses, and this wallhanging is just too cute. Plus, there are 5 kids in their family and 5 little birds on the bottom panel there see? Perfect :) I just traced the pattern onto the fabric so I can start stitching it up.
I hope you all will have a good weekend. We don't have any plans as of yet. I've just been enjoying the good weather we are finally getting.

Heather,
The quilt you are making for your MIL is, without a doubt, one of the loveliest quilts I have EVER seen! I can't wait to see your finish - I love it. Makes me wish I quilted, but I can't take up another craft - too much stash already. . .I am also anxious to see your finish on Barbara Ana's
"Little House" as I have only seen the digital image. Thanks for your hard work and creativity. brdstitcher @ gmail dot com

The Cinderberry pattern is really quite nice. I absolutely LOVE to do embroidery/redwork stitchery. Bareroots makes some wonderful designs as well.

Have a great weekend... :D
