Americana QAL - Row 3 - Birdhouses

Hi y'all!  So I mentioned that I got a lot of sewing done over the weekend.  Saturday, I worked on Row 3 for the Americana QAL being hosted by my friend, Deana, at Dreamworthy Quilts.  Deana is an extremely talented designer and I cannot help but join in with every quilt along she hosts.  This one didn't let me down.  This row is birdhouses.  Here are the left facing ones...

And the right facing ones...

Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I'm not much into applique'.  And Deana really does beautiful applique'.  But I just couldn't tackle it this weekend.  So I pulled a bird from Lorna's design for the Elephant Parade, and used it instead...

All in all, I love this row.
