WiPs Wednesday...rather late!

I have made some progress on my 

"Birds of A Feather" quilt!

The backing is pieced....

The siggy blocks have been placed to reflect 

the placement of the feathers on the front of the quilt!

The blank spaces are for my details- 

I pieced three feathers of my own!

The other blank space is for Carla- she made two!

And the scrappy binding is made too!

My Christmas Reindeer are nearly finished...

In fact, I have only one more to go!

Finally I did have a chance to play with 

my new fabric!

And it does play together so nicely!

Happy sewing!



  1. Woohoo! Those signature blocks look terrific, and I loved their aqua sashing. I have no idea how to use mine, so am collecting ideas--yours is definately one of them.

    Beautiful backing!

  2. Love how you've placed the signature blocks in the backing. Wow you've almost finished your Christmas reindeer and I haven't even started. (I think there is a recurring theme there!)
    Love love the colours of the HST's.

  3. I am really loving those feather quilt colours. That dark turquoise/teal is such a nice colour, and the orange is a great pop. Looking forward to seeing it when it's done!

  4. What a GREAT idea for the signature blocks! Everything looks amazing.

  5. Wow! Your back looks great! You are so good at planning things haphazard piecing going on here! Your reindeer are so cute. I am a sucker for red and white. Isn't new fabric fun?

  6. I love the signature blocks in your backing - what a wonderful way of remembering all the lovely ladies who've contributed blocks to this quilt!!! You'll be able to look back and recall them in years to come!! ... The stitcheries are adorable!!

  7. Cute backing - the siggy blocks look great laid out like that! Your new fabric does play very nicely together :-)

  8. Love how you have laid the siggy blocks out! Cute binding too.

  9. I'd say that this quilt will end up reversible! Your reindeer are so much fun. It is all going together so nicely!

  10. I love how you've included signature blocks on your bee quilt! Those reindeer make me laugh every time I see them , they're so cute!! Those Christmas fabrics look wonderful in HST!!

  11. Love the signature blocks. It is a great addition for the quilt!

  12. Oh you have been busy! Love the signature blocks and that they match the feathers - very good idea!

  13. Your quilt backing is going to be delightful too. Smart planning with the signatures.
    Those reindeer are still looking adorable!

  14. Look at those happy HSTs! They're just so cheerful.

    And the's going to take the quilt to another level. Can't wait for the finish reveal!

  15. The quilt back is great Susan, and the signature blocks is a really neat touch.

  16. what a great idea to place the siggies to reflect where the feathers are placed. You are working away and getting a lot accomplished

  17. Love the colours - and what a beautiful block design! Love the simplicity of it

  18. You chose a great layout for signature blocks, not only to mimic the feathers' placement on the front - how DID you keep track of whose feather was whose?! - but just how you sashed them together. It's really nice to see progress (already) on blocks from this year's bee. Good on you!

  21. I so admire that you are finishing up this quilt so quickly, Susan. And I am equally impressed with our grand idea for the placement of the siggy blocks. You are in inspiration...and love your new "play time" project!!

  22. A very productive and fun time. I like how you are arranging the siggy blogs to show who pieced which feather. Now you can thoroughly enjoy working with you new fabrics....
