This is what is on my design wall in my quilt studio right now. That's where I want to be. In my quilt studio right now. But I have a big batch of dishes to do, Oatmeal Cookies to mix and bake, a dinner to plan, blah-blah-blah-blah. Oh, and of course, this very important blog post to get up.
This block is called Flying Birds and the finished size is 9". Wow. I haven't made that big a block in a long time. (Have I ever made that big a block?) The quilt is to be another baby quilt (what else?), and so far I'm just playing around with the blocks as I get them done, trying to figure out how I want to use them.
All the fabric is pulled out of my stash. The backing will be (as of this moment anyway) the blue in the block in the upper row, third from the left. I have three yards of it so it will be good to use some of it in this quilt. I bought the piece about a year ago online to match something else but it was just "off" enough to look awful. We all know that happens every now and then when you send your order and money out into cyberspace.
I'm going to stop now so I can get back in the kitchen to do what has to be done and then maybe have time to sneak back into the quilt studio and make some more big bird blocks.
