Birds, Birds, Birds

My Bird Dance is finished...
I machine quilted it and who would have
thought the binding would have been the
hardest part of finishing it. 
It's a very heavy, hot quilt to sit under.
 I need to start finishing wool quilts in
 the winter and not in the hottest part of the summer.
And then there are other kinds of birds...

Western Tanagers...


And Evening Grosbeaks...

I have...

Lots and...
lots of babies.

The tiniest babies...

 Takes them awhile to eat a peanut.

I laugh out loud at their expressions.
I can hardly...

the cuteness.

Climb little'll make it.

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.
