Once you have this sewn, you can appliqué the birds (tucking their feet into the openings that you left) and the leaves and berries. The last thing is to sew the cherry stems using a stem stitch and 12wt thread - or floss.
Here are all the parts of Month 4 - along with the Months 1-3.......
As you can see - it is still in chunks. Once I get to Month 6 - this will be in one piece and will complete the left side of the quilt. That genius construction is from Lisa C. I drew this pattern out and appliquéd all the blocks of the original quilt. Leigh Ann pitched in and pieced many of the blocks. Lisa looked at my drawing and figured out how to break up the construction into months. And month after month is added to what you previously have - so by the time you get to Month 11 - your quilt is in 2 pieces - and you only have one seam to sew. This quilt will never hang around in your closet or your shelves among the WIP's. It will finish quickly.
Have you heard about this?
The next blog post on Friday will be written by someone else. Come back to see who.
