Robin Mini Quilt
We're all about Christmas robins round here at the moment. We have a very friendly robin out in the garden and he's set us off drawing and creating robins.
I began making this as a Mini Quilt, but Venetia has now also started a couple of robin fabric pictures which will become mini quilts, so, since we don't want too many robin mini quilts, and since I think I could happily make lots more robin applique blocks, I think this might now become part of a larger robin quilt. Quite possibly it won't get finished till next Christmas, mind you!
I originally thought this large doily would make good snow flakes, but I couldn't bring myself to chop it up, and in it's original state I think it looks much more like a full moon, but I quite like it that way.
And I had the perfect, vintage, mother of pearl button for my mistletoe berry too.
I'm hoping you like robins, because there may be a few more around here over the next week or so!
