I have adored Helen Godden's work for a long time and have taken 1 class from her in Houston. I have always wanted to take a class on her painting techniques. Then I saw her block of the month for this year and I knew this was the first block of the month I had to make. Yes, it truly is my first. It's all Australian birds and with two pet birds of my own I knew this was for me. Here's my painted birdies. You can still join in by visiting her website, www.helengodden.com and searching the store to pay the joining fee. It's such fun! I can't wait for next month's block.
I hope you get to quilt today!
