  • so very excited! Need to go in my DMC stash and see what I have, otherwise I will have to make a trip to get some new thread! Can not wait to start, thanks again so much for sharing your talent with us. Jodie

  • I can hardly wait! Your little birdies are just too cute!

  • What will the dimensions of the finished quilt be, please?

  • Sorry, another question. What color did you use for your background? I was looking at the pics on flicker, and one appears to be white and the other a silver gray, but wasn't sure if that was correct, or if my monitor is not displaying the colors correctly.

  • Hey there! I'm trying to decide what fabric/if I should join in. So tempting! Can you say a few words about what the quilt will look like? Is this a baby quilt? Will the embroidery blocks be simple (like just the bird shown) or more elaborate/time consuming? Thanks!

  • I am so looking forward to this BOM. I ordered a jelly roll today – Dream On by moda. Not sure what solid I'm going with yet. I was thinking about using a white on white or will that look funny, do you think?

  • well, I couldn’t decide so I just ordered two charm packs of Fresh Flowers by Moda and two of Central Park by Kate Spain. I will have to decide when they get here which I will use… I liked them both online…

  • I would like to know where you got the fabric for the background.@yards of solid for block centres ect.Do you have the fabrics.
    Thank You Irene P.S. I love that work embroidery.

    However I have never done embroidery before and don’t know where to buy DMC floss. 🙁

I have PLENTY of fabric, so no worries there! Just need tips on how to go about stitching up these cute little birds!!
    Thanks so much!

  • Bonsoir,
    ce quilt est magnifique je vais commencer dès demain à le faire.
    Grand merci

  • I love the birdie blocks and have been following along looking at the pictures each month……I found myself looking for the next block online on April first! I am hooked and also love sunkissed. So for me it is a match made in heaven! I am a late starter but wanted to pop over and say thanks for such a cute and colorful BOM!!!

  • […] have finished up the first two blocks for the Birdie Stitches BOM.  I am using the Moda’s Sunkissed line also….I love the bright spring-like colors in […]

  • […] I finished up my March block for the Birdie Stitches quilt.  I just have April’s to work on and then I will be caught up till May’s […]

  • […] to keep my hands busy while I waited for kids.  I found inspiration at Little Miss Shabby and her BOM Birdie Stitches, how cute is that.  Meghyn was looking over my shoulder when I was looking at Miss Shabby’s blog […]

  • I just found your website and love it. I can’t wait to try your Birdie Stitches BOM.

  • Coming into this late but had a question: You said you have a lot left over from a jelly roll. I have one of those half jelly rolls where there’s only 20 strips versus 40. Do you think that’s enough or should I pick up another one in those fabrics?

  • Thanks you so much for this lovely set of Bird’s – I am sticking to a red and variety of blues with a hint of yellow and hope to have a lovely cot quilt for a new baby when completed.

  • It’s June and I am just getting started……Never say “never”….LOL! I am using Bella gray for background and a jelly roll from Moda call “Strawberry Fields”. I also have a HUGE stash of #8 Perle cotton so plan to use that instead of embroidery thread. It should be OK???? This will be my “travel project”, I always need something that I can take with me that doesn’t involve a machine.

  • I found your dresden and loved it… I love the colors the spirit of joy that is behind it. Your sight is such a joy to me. I am in love with your birdy blocks.. Thank you very much for providing things like this for girls who love to sew.


  • I am having trouble finding Moda’s Sunkissed line, unfortunately. I have found some other lines that I like, but am not sure how they’ll look with the floss. Or should I just wing it (LOL) and go for floss that coordinates with whatever jelly roll I end up getting? One local shop had Amelia and Hometown … ??

    • If you want some great inspiration take a look through the flickr group: Such a wonderful variety of fabrics being used and they all look fabulous! I think Hometown would be pretty cool since it still has all of the typography fabrics–kind of the same vibe as Sunkissed. =)

      • Thanks Corey! I actually did a little bit more looking around and found another line I just loved!! It’s the Fresh Flowers Jelly Roll by Deb Strain, also for Moda. I love the vibrant colors on this line! I thought I wanted something more subdued, more pastel, but when I saw this one I just had to spring for it. I ordered online but they say only 2-3 business days for shipping, so I’m hoping it will get here mid-week and I can get started before I go on vacation next weekend! I think this would be a terrific project to take with me to work on when I need a break from the family games or the jigsaw puzzle we usually have going.

  • […] month, I found the Birdie Stitches Block of the Month over at Little Miss Shabby.  It was so cute that I decided to catch up and stitch along to make a […]

  • oh my goodness!!! I don’t know HOW I found these cute little stitches but I’m so glad I did!! I can’t wait to get started on this! Thank you SO much for the cute patterns!!
