Why do Birds Suddenly Appear?

I am trying to coax Spring to come by making another Moda Bake Shop quilt! If I make birds appear does that mean spring is close?
This is my latest project for the Moda Bake Shop. I designed this quilt back in July and received fabric for it in August. Because LIFE just gets in the way I was able to finally finish it at the beginning of this year. I designed and made it for my Mother in law. She has loved birds for ever and is always excited to see new species in her yard. I saw that someone made a bird block and thought, that would make a WONDERFUL quilt! I designed a bird house to go with it and Bird Love was born. 
This was a MUCH harder tutorial to write and took me almost 10 hours! I wanted to make sure that everyone could understand it, so I hope everyone can. I am very proud of this and so far this is my favorite quilt I have designed. 

If you find that you want to make it, head on over the Mode Bade Shop and check it out! I would also love to see anyone's projects! It makes me feel very special!
