RSC17 - Yardbirds

I have an RSC completion to report!  I started these bird blocks several years ago, and only did a few before the project got sidelined. As per Angela's RSC challenge, I chose this little UFO bundle, made more birds, and forged ahead to completion this month.

 The bird pattern is from Lynne Taylor at Patchery Menagerie, and she now has it available for purchase HERE, although when I started these blocks it was a free tutorial she was offering.

 The egg fabric, which I've had in my stash for ten or fifteen years, became the color inspiration for finishing the quilt -- the palette actually reminds me of an earlier era: 1970s avocado, harvest gold, etc.  Not really a primary-toned RAINBOW like we'd expect from Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but anyway an array of colors.


Thanks to Angela's RSC Completion challenge, I got another one done!  See more finished quilts HERE.

A few 'green' blocks for the Sunshine Guild's
March Block Lotto.

February has been a rather non-productive and uninspired month for me as far as quilting goes.  First out of town, then sick, and finally house guests ... just felt distracted all month.  Let's hope March turns out better!

RSC17: February - aqua

I got my baby-quilt-of-the-month assembled earlier this week.  Meanwhile: house guests ... so my sewing room has been otherwise occupied.  I'm planning to get this layered and quilted after the weekend, when life settles back to normal.
