Thanks for the encouragement and advice regarding my LOVE blocks yesterday. Many of you liked the two-tone blocks and even suggested adding more. So glad to hear that because when I went to finish that missing block I realized that one was also a I-ran-out-of-solid-fabric-have-to-improvise-block as well!
I think I'm going to stick with the 4 by 5 block layout especially since I have been reassured the two-tone blocks work well. Plus this means I don't have to make any more for this quilt and can move on to other projects...
....like our guild's ugly fabric challenge. Above is the ugly fabric I have to work with.
I don't really think it's ugly, but it's what I have to work with ;-) Now it is strips sitting among other strips waiting for inspiration, which better come soon as it is due next week!
I went ahead and finished quilting my bird house and sewed on the binding. Today I'm hoping to find some cool bird buttons to sew on. If not, then I think I'll embroider some. This little mini really needs a little something. Hopefully tomorrow I will have an improved birdhouse picture to share ;-)
Have an amazing day!!!!
