A Block Book.

The gorgeous Quilt from the Quilted Crow ladies (The Cousin's Walk) comes complete with its own block book to store all the gorgeous bird blocks in as they are completed.
I must say, this little extra was a lovely surprise as a part of the BOM.
This first month sees construction of the pieced centre block, and the Block Book.  Getting my skates on to have these two finished before the next mailout of 4 blocks comes.

Gorgeous saw-tooth border around my block book.  The applique for this is felted wool on an interesting linen-like fabric.  A loose weave, but looks very nice.
Initially, I'd thought to do this applique by hand, however, time reality hit me , so by machine it is.

I don't think it looks too bad.

One side sewn, another pinned.  Only two more to go!
