For the Birds series by Blackbird Designs Stitch-A-Long

For the Birds is the newest in the Loose Feathers Series for 2017 offered by the Blackbird Design ladies, Barb Adams and Alma Allen. The first in the series of nine is called It's Spring Fever. They will be releasing one a month for the next nine months. Each chart will be 91w x 91h and will be stitched in various colors of linen. As the information becomes available, I will add it. If you are wanting to stitch this series as all one piece, scroll down to see the one Carla Coburn is stitching on one piece of 32ct PTP Legacy linen. For the most part, she is using the DMC colors.
