Happy February! Hard to believe isn't it? - whew! I think time seems to be flying more quickly now as I look at that pile of UFOs... or PhDs. :-) And although I can't report any progress on them, it doesn't mean I haven't been busy.
This week I finished the Hospitality Table block from the Bountiful Life quilt. I love this block.. far more than I thought I would when I started it.
So the only thing to do was to move onto the next block - Birds with Snacks. Hmmm, appropriate for Superbowl Sunday??
Here is the pattern. I think these birds are going to be fun!
I have already gotten the leaves done and have moved onto the branches.
Here are my fabric selections for these two beautiful birds. What do you think?
Oh boy, more bird feet!!!
Word from Punxsutawny Phil is six more weeks of winter.. :-(
Those purples and blue are perfect for your bird! Applique takes time, but look at that block just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. I really enjoy the applique even though it takes time. It's worth it in the end! Thanks for stopping by and visiting.Delete
Love the colour choices for your birds. The blue especially, my favorite colour!ReplyDelete
Yes, the blue one will be particularly pretty I think! Thanks for stopping by!Delete
I came over from Kathy's. That hospitality block is just gorgeous! Your birds will be beautiful and Phil - well, here in California we desperately need rain, so we could use some more winter.ReplyDelete
I would gladly send you some of the 8 -10" of snow we are getting today. Hope you get some relief soon - very scary. Thanks for stopping by and your compliments on my block.Delete
Your Hospitality Table is beautiful - great choices in your fabrics! LOVE the name of that next block! So funny :) And they will be some very well-dressed birds, too :)ReplyDelete
I hope they enjoy their snacks! LOL First I need to get some feathers on them! Thanks for stopping by.Delete
I always get excited when I see someone working on A Bountiful Life! My dear friend Karen Mowery wrote the book and drew all the lovely diagrams. She passed away one year ago and I love seeing her work live on!ReplyDelete
It is a wonderful book! I was so sad to hear that Karen Mowry had passed away the month before I bought this book. I feel honored to be using her patterns and recreating this masterpiece. What a legacy for the original quilter and for Karen! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Come back again - I will post as I progress through the blocksDelete
