A Finished Quilt

With one day to spare for the month of January, I'm finally done with my "Birdie Stitches" quilt. 

I ventured into a little more FMQing on this one doing a loopy meander in the squares that surround each embroidery block as well as the border.  I had some tension issues and changed it a couple of times.  I also changed my needle to a bigger size.  By the time I was getting to the end I think I figured it out.  I feel I'm getting better and might even try something other than a loop next time :)

Quilt stats:
Birdie Stitches BOM 2011, by Lttle Miss Shabby.  You can find it here.
Fabric is Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda
DMC floss
Size: about 40" x 60"

As this was my January goal in the Lovely Year of Finshes, I am linking up!

My other WIP's for the week included more stars in the Dancing Stars QAL (button on my side bar) 
I love how they all look together!  I am up to 25 so far which is enough for a baby quilt but I want it bigger.  I think I will keep going :)

I will also be linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
