this lovely fabric. I loved the dots for the quilt border but there wasn't enough because there is a 9" border section that has birds on it. I didn't really want to buy more fabric so I did a bit of math and found that I could do a pieced border and use corner squares of the birds. That left me with a piece of the bird border so I cut around as many birds as I could and I will applique them across the lower border.
this quilt from Lori Smith. This will be my eagle project for Angie and Audrey's Quilt Like an Eagle Challenge. I need to dig around and see if I have enough black for the background (I think I do) and then start pulling my wools for the applique. I hope to use some of the new stitches I am learning from Sue Spargo's book.
The sun is returning after a few grey, rainy days (much needed to help conquer the fires in Washington) so I will head to the trail for a longer run today.
