"Birds of Autumn"
This is a table runner featuring birds that have been "fussy cut" from some autumn fabric that I fell in love with at our local quilt shop. The first fat quarter of it was a gift from a sweet friend, and I probably wouldn't have gone ahead with the project at all if she hadn't gently forced my hand by giving it to me...LOL
(She doesn't know it, but she's got a little surprise coming too...)
I hand quilted it with a leaf pattern-- my first real hand quilting project (I've definitely got some learning to do, but all in all, not a bad first effort I think). Here is a close-up of one of the blocks. You can't really see the quilting very well in the picture (I suppose that's just as well **smile**), but it really shows off the gorgeous fabrics.
