Saturday in Brown

I got to work with some brown this week!

First I cut out and pieced the top of the blue/brown irish chain. The blocks are 9 inch finished and with the strip piecing this went together in two days. I think it will just get some straight line stitching through the chains and the big squares and finish with the blue homespun binding.

Then I cut out the parts for the birds in the air blocks. I was curious so I just had to make a few. Here are my first three. I'll do the other 9 next week.

In between my sewing this week I made some basic pinwheels with the corners from last weeks brown pinwheel blocks. I seem to have an oops in there! I've been working through all my colors in between other projects.

Head on over to Angela's blog on Saturday and see what others have been working on for their brown challenge.

I have a plan for next week - brown and thanksgiving............
