Quiltmaker's 100 Block Tour

Welcome to meags & me - possibly the best mother/daughter team of appliqué and embroidery lovers and we are SO thrilled to be a part of this amazing magazine for a 3rd time and extra extra thrilled to have made it on the cover! We squealed with delight the first time we saw it!

Our block features our favs- birds, flowers, appliqué and embroidery. Really, we don't think there is anyone who won't like this block.

For fun, and because my table was desperately needing a spring upgrade, we made a table topper. The best thing about this is it can be made with any 12" block.  And the pinwheels. Pinwheels make everything happy.
