Three suns rising

I've finally made it back to my yellow birds today, and had quite a productive morning.

I grew my last sun block until it fitted with its fellows.


then I added them all onto the big piece I'd already done.


Then, for the umpteenth time I laid out my remaining yellow birds, changed my mind twice and ended up with the chunk that is now in the bottom right corner. All I need to do now is attach the top bird and then this side can be added on.


The remaining birds are not so much a well thought out set as the ones I haven't wanted anywhere else, so I'm hoping that they will not take this amiss and that I can piece them together without too much difficulty.  If that goes smoothly then I can think about what next.

  1. The printed words are really helping pull this together for me. It's fun to watch what you add, but especially what words you are adding. :)

  6. You have gotten your money's worth from the little printing kit! Like everyone else, I love the words. They are just the right touch. BTW how is it that the yellow birds is so close to completion? How did I miss this? It's as if you went from bits and fragments to a big solid piece. Good for you!

  7. These really are a beautiful collection of fabrics. It's even harder to get a group to work well when they are such quiet values. I enjoy all the special touches you are adding.

  12. Oh my, this is really growing! I too love the words. And your sun blocks are so fun. This quilt makes me think of the Beatles' song "Here Comes the Sun". It looks like a summer morning!
