RSC in GREEN!!!!

I was so happy Green is the color for May. I was in the mood to make some of the birds in the air blocks and I just happened to need some bright/light green ones! These got started in the sewing room this week. They should get finished off into their blocks later today.


Edited....I got them sewn together. Now back to outside and weeding while the temps are in the 70's! Well, shoot - I guess I have a boo boo to fix later! 




These will join their siblings that are waiting in the box for the brown and black ones to get made up.

Then they can become a nice large quilt top. I started making these for my 'own' quilt after I sewed up the last batch to make a wedding quilt for my nephew and niece back in 2015. Here is a photo of that one. These are so fun to make with the RSC Challenge concentrating on one color at a time. I used the pattern from Sylvia's Wedding Quilt but it is a standard 6.5 inch block using 2.5 inch strips for the small triangles and a 6 7/8 square cut on the diagonal for the other half.

Linking up with the RSC Challenge.

We have been Buddy sitting for Grandma's Boxer while they were over in Clearwater for Papa Andy's surgery on Thursday. Things went well and they are headed home this morning. The kids will be sad to have Buddy head home tomorrow.... but the cats and guinea pigs will be oh so happy!.
Buddy and Aidan this morning.

  9. Birds in the air look lovely in green, such a pretty wedding gift quilt, might be a good idea for me for a future RSC project. I too got a little gardening time in today, having lovely weather here as well.

  13. A few Birds in the Air blocks and you will have quite the flock! You are right to want one for your own. I would have found it difficult to give away the one you made previously!
