Made Monday {Spool Birds}

 
Today I'm sharing the other half of the project - to be shipped to their new home in Kentucky tomorrow!
These 7 little birdies are going to be turned into a mobile for a brand new baby girl to be born in a few weeks, a good life for these birdies, to be sure. And the baby will hopefully enjoy these birding hanging above her crib.  I'm sure lots of cooing will be involved - hopefully no crying!

 They wanted to peer out the window - who am I to say no?

 Seven different fabrics, then I mis-matched the tops and bellies to give them a fun look.
This is my 3rd batch of birdies, the first for my son's nursery, and the second for my sisters wedding.
Here's the easy-peasy pattern from Spool should you ever want to make a flock of your own.

 I added a little loop on each birds back (hand quilting thread - which is a bit stronger than regular thread) so they can be hung instead of mounted on TOP of branches, per the request of said baby's momma.  Excellent idea - I may try that method some day!


Starting tomorrow I'll be putting the final coat of paint on my new fabric storage!  Yippeeee!
I realize that's not sewing, but its sewing related.  OH and after that, maybe tomorrow night, I'll start piecing the back for this quilt!  Now that the top is finished....

What sewing plans do you have for this week?
