Mary Engelbreit Friends and Flowers

Here is the center of the Friends and Flowers quilt that I am making--the bird will have very, very long legs embroidered on and the round, red flowers will have stems embroidered on, too. I still have 4 borders to put on. But I got this far and had to show what I have accomplished so far today! Also, I tried again with the applique on Rosebud Lane and got it right this time!! Hurrah! Now I am appliquing the pieces down with the buttonhole stitch on my machine.

It was so kind of several of you to write and say that you had messed up on occasion, too, like I did with my applique yesterday--sometimes things just happen, don't they? Thanks, dd2 for sharing your "Mommy Moment" with all of us--I bet there's lots of us that can relate to that ! (Although it was awfully fun to read, I don't mean to be laughing at you!!)

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Where did you find the Friends and Flowers fabric? I am having trouble finding it locally.
