The Emily Munroe Quilt

One last look at my Emily Munroe quilt before I take the blocks apart.
I wanted some photos of the entire quilt to
judge that last border...whether to keep it or not.
I like it, especially since it represents the original.

Now to take all the blocks apart and
 reconstruct the quilt using the potholder method.

Dogwood Rose Birds

Three more blocks finished for Sue's Bird Dance.
The turquoise circles on the wing are velvet.
I'm using Presto Sheer that Sue recommends and makes it
easier to handle and applique the velvet.

Such bright fun colors.

I like how the background wool has
an overlay of linen fabric and ric-rac.
Sue's 2017 BOM is called Fresh Cut and is a quilt
of bright bold colors on a back wool background.
Vases brimming with flowers.
I have a gift certificate so I couldn't sign up fast enough.
You can see it here...

Holly Berry Red Birds

My latest blocks for Sue Spargo's Bird Dance.

The blocks are organized by the predominate wool color
used for the bird bodies.
You gotta love the purple accents with the red.
