The birds have been moving quicker since I cut all the pieces – cutting one bird at a time was slowing me down I guess – also I decided this quilt had been hanging around long enough at the barely started phase and I needed to prod it along. So Bird Brain now has 28 birds! I think today or tomorrow I will take the other projects off of the wall and let Bird Brain take over until it is done. I think I have 16 more cut out and ready to work on. When I get done with those we will see how many more need to be made. What is a good size for a couch quilt – I always forget – I make so many queen size! Right now this quilt top is taking up most of my work space so I haven’t gotten around to cutting and glue basting the applique pieces for Morning Glory – as soon as the bird blocks are done I will take a day or two to get more prepped on that quilt. The 30’s print triangle quilt will wait until this top is done and Morning Glory center panel has more prepped on it then the work table will be free for the strips.
Handful of Scraps worked on Thursday evening got the center area diamonds done going across the section.
And last night I was ready to get back to work on this area
After I showed the tiny hexies Granny’s Gone Crazy – earlier this week I decided to get the hexies sewn in place that I had prepped – I think there were 5 of them – I got those stitched and I made one more that is waiting for me to put in place. I think I will leave this box in the living room for now so it will be handy to pick up for 5 minutes here and there and get more made. I have been told now and then that I need to let this quilt grow into a small quilt, lap size or whatever but I really doubt I will have the patience for it – these are half inch hexies – would you have the patience to make a couch size out of these? The bigger hexies above are 7/8th inch hexies – much easier to do – right now I will keep trying to get it to grow into a table runner and we will see from there ok? This project has been fun for using the little bits of scraps instead of tossing them – I suppose it is a project that could go for years and years if one wanted to.
