So cute Andrée! The proportions are just right and the flowers on the front are adorable. Nice, nice, nice! Deb :)

Thank you Susan! Funny, how did you know I plan to send it to a show? :wink:
I hope to have it accepted at the Vermont Quilt Festival this year. I'll keep you posted...

Andrée,

Love your birdhouse! I have to tell you that about a month ago I suddenly thought, "why didn't I think about a birdhouse?" So it is really lovely to see yours; it is absolutely perfect.

What fun it has been to see the great variety and personalization in everyone's quilts. I enjoyed this BOM more than I can say!

So perfect, Andrée! I was never partial to the year being in the border, you found a fantastic solution that is in keeping with the overall theme of this quilt. Love it! :D

Andrée, your birdhouse is very cute and so fitting with the rest of the border!

I guess a few of us have our eyes on the current BOM, but I thought I would post here my solution for the top border.

Just reviewed your show and tell even though I am not doing the BOM. I love the work you are doing. I've also enjoyed Margo's tutorials early on. Can't wait to see how you all finish your quilts. What a bunch of beauties!

Loving the changes to the 2013, especially since I have the feeling this quilt won't be completed in 2013. I'm 3/4 of the way through month 4, just studied the picture to realize all the borders are different. Great job, everyone!
