A finished quilt top.

Been working on these blocks for a long time and they are finally all done and sashed in my usual white.

Latest Quilt Top

I’m excited to see this one come together. I’ll hopefully make real progress this weekend!

Wacky Birds

Recently got some of these Jay McCarroll birds.   Don’t know why I hadn’t bought any before.  They are so weird and I love them.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I’ve looked at Jay McCarroll birds and they didn’t do anything for me…until now, that is. Off to buy some of that fabric. Too cute!

    What a lovely quilt! Very cute fabrics – love the Jay McCarroll fabrics too, especially all the grey fabrics in the range. I love how you have used these fabrics.

    You always find the cutest prints and then”frame” them in lust colors. Nice quilt.

    oooh! gorgeous! may i ask what color is that blue with the arcadia??

      Thanks Erin! And unfortunately, I’ve got no idea! The blue was a fabric that was given to me when someone moved and gave me a lot of their fabric… so I don’t know where it comes from or what it’s called. Sorry!

    Lovely! The white you’ve used in the sashing came out beautifully in your photos as well – it looks like thin rice paper in need of a glowing light behind it.

    Love the blocks! Jay Carrol birds are really funny…I keep seeing his stuff too and hadn’t picked any up before… might have to go get some sooner than later!

    Really really cute! You have a wonderful sense of style and your color combos are always refreshing. Can’t wait to see it finished.
