Birdhouse quilt is finished!!

AMAZING!  I finally finished the birdhouse quilt!!!!

I was given the squares as a housewarming gift from my friends Teri Chandler and Connie Spurlock back in 2000!!!  They also gave me the white on white fabric and brown post fabrics - all I had to do was finish up the blocks, add some sashing and quilt it!  Oh, and I also made all of the yo-yo's and sewed them onto the birdhouses.  And to think it only took me 15 YEARS!!

I guess there must have been a plan in effect though as I plan to take this quilt with me to Mindy's when I go next week.  They just bought a new bed (for me, of course) - It's a log bed made from wood from the Yak!  I think these birdhouses will look great on that bed and it will be waiting for me to visit the next time, too!

Speaking of my trip, I'm really excited about it!  Mike and Peggy will arrive sometime this week, in time to be trained to help Don with Mom and Stefani will be here most of the week, too.  Anyway, I'm flying off to Kalispell, MT, and then on to Libby for a week playing at Mindy and Kyle's restaurant!  I'm so looking forward to it.  It will be the first time I've been away from Mom for even an overnight, so I'm a little anxious, but still looking forward to it!

THANK YOU Teri and Connie for the quilt squares!  I really love this quilt!!
