More Fresh Cut...

Well, I'm still working on the borders so
 I'll share the rest of the blocks for Fresh Cut.
This might be my favorite block...
The Open Buttonhole Filler Stitch is used to stitch that vivid
lime green center of the main flower. 

That main stem is made with one of
Sue's signature ribbons.

The blocks are stitched together in panels and
in the case of the above block the blue bird that is seen
throughout the quilt is appliqued to that
 gray block and part of it overlaps
 two blocks after the panel is formed. 
Still not receiving email notifications from Blogger,
so if you have a question I will check back and answer it here.

A Cow Elk...

A beautiful...

  and very, very...
pregnant cow elk.
She's been hanging out behind the house.
A quiet area for her to have her baby.

I haven't seen her today so she's probably gone to a
safe spot up the hill to have her little one.
Blogger is not sending email notifications so I
wanted to say thank you for the nice comments on my Fresh Cut quilt.

Fresh Cut

My progress of Sue Spargo's 2017 BOM Fresh Cut...
I still need to add the borders.
A few close-ups of some of the blocks.


I absolutely love the bright colors on the black background.
I'll show more blocks when I get the top finished.

I was hoping to share my blocks for Sue Spargo's Freshcut,
but still have not received permission
 to share her work on social media yet...

So here are more photos of the Red Fox who is
tormenting my squirrels and my cat Bailey.

 The Fox and Bailey have this ongoing watching you scenario...
Bailey of course is safely behind a screen door.

Seriously upset...
