For the birds.....

I was very disappointed when I realized I had to work Sat,Sun and Mon this weekend after my MIL put in my head that it was my Saturday off. I forgot I had the kids last Saturday for a birthday party  and she got them Sunday when hubby dropped them off. I had so many plans...... oh well. Next Saturday will be a busy one in the sewing room once I drop off the kids.

I got my brown birds all done for the month. I figure there is one or two colors left - right Angela? Time to start playing with layouts. I have a feeling there will be a black color month so I know 12 more black blocks will be added to the mix. I can't figure out if we are missing any other color.......? The block will each finish at 6 inches so I need to figure out how long and wide I want it.


I did a little finishing up on Friday and stitched the rows of the irish chain together. I have the backing and it is all washed and ready for pressing. I guess that one will be quilted and bound next weekend =(.


I never got to my Thanksgiving brown... good thing there is still time left in the month.

Head on over to Angela's at SoScrappy for a Rainbow scrap linky in brown this weekend.

  1. Great looking bird blocks. It is starting to look like a real quilt. Your color logic seems good. There are only so many colors left after all. Sorry you have to work the weekend away.

  2. Love the Birds in the Air blocks. That is an excellent block choice for the color challenge. I can't wait to see the end result. :)

  7. Two great quilts. LOVE your colorful birds in the air :)
    I guess that black might be one of the remaining colors. Gray another. Will be interesting.
